Sheyi Ojo is set to miss eight weeks as a result of a dislocated shoulder he suffered in Fulham's 2-1 victory at QPR last Friday.
The 20-year-old suffered the injury in the second half the Whites' victory in the west London derby and was strechered off as a result.
The Liverpool loan man has now confirmed that he will miss eight weeks of the season as he recovers from the injury and has already started the first stage of rehab.
Fulham won the game 2-1 thanks to an own-goal from Jack Robinson and a Stefan Johansen strike, with Conor Washington halving the deficit in the 92nd minute.
Ojo signed for Fulham on a season-long loan deal after they beat several suitors to his signature, including Middlesbrough and Derby.
