There are fears Alessandro Nesta could be out for a month after dislocating his shoulder.
The Milan defender fell awkwardly on to his left shoulder and arm during the first half of tonight's 2-0 win over Cesena.
He was taken to hospital for x-rays and the initial reports are of a dislocation, but not the feared fracture or ligament damage.
It would be a particularly heavy blow for the veteran, as he suffered an identical injury to this shoulder in 2007 and was forced to stay on the sidelines for three months.
