Just days after scoring the Genoa Derby winner, Maxi Lopez fractured his toe in training for Sampdoria.
The Argentine sustained the injury during a training session and this evening Samp released the medical report.
X-Rays found the incomplete fracture of the third toe on his right foot.
His condition will be evaluated day to day, so medical staff are making no claims about when Maxi Lopez will be back in action.
The 29-year-old only just arrived on loan from Catania during the January transfer window.
