FK Austria Wien defender Andreas Schicker will be out for six weeks after tearing ligaments in his right foot.
Schicker was hurt during the 4-0 defeat at leaders FC Salzburg which left Austria rooted to the bottom of the Bundesliga table with just 12 points from 13 matches. The 20-year-old, who will have an operation on Tuesday, was not near an opponent when he suffered the injury. Austria are also having a disappointing time in the UEFA Cup. They began Group F with a 4-1 home defeat by SV Zulte Waregem last week and face a tricky trip to AFC Ajax on 2 November.
