Torino defender Cristian Molinaro has been diagnosed with a composite fracture to the left fibula.
The injury was caused by an accidental collision during training on Thursday, but the X-Rays only confirmed the fracture this evening.
Further tests are required before Toro doctors will give a more precise recovery time.
It’s a heavy blow for the 34-year-old, who had played in 17 Serie A games this season.
He was out of action for five months after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament in September 2016.
