The 31-year-old was taken off at half-time during the game with Chelsea and initial scans indicated that he had suffered an anterior criciate ligament injury.

“Andy Johnson suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury against Chelsea and is likely to be sidelined for the majority of the season,” a QPR statement read.

Manchester United loanee Rafael da Silva will also be sidelined for a few weeks after picking up a hamstring strain.
