Inter striker Rodrigo Palacio could be out for up to a month after limping out of this afternoon's training session.
The Argentine forward pulled up today reporting a muscular problem, with the Nerazzurri due to carry out tests over the next few hours to determine the extent of the injury.
It seems almost certain that the thigh strain will see him miss the match against Atalanta this weekend, but some outlets are claiming that it could see the 31-year-old sidelined until May.
The news will be devastating for fans of the San Siro side, as the club are already without main goal-threat Diego Milito following a long-term knee injury.
