John Arne Riise will be out of action for two weeks after damaging his thigh muscle, but hopes to make it for Roma's trip to Milan.
The Giallorossi full-back got the results of tests this afternoon and was told he'll be sidelined for around 15 days.
He has suffered a first degree lesion to the thigh muscle, so it is a minor strain.
There are hopes that Riise can make it back in time for December 18 and Roma's big game against Milan at San Siro.
