QPR manager Mark Hughes has confirmed that Armand Traore is to be sidelined for “a couple of weeks” with a hamstring injury.
The left-back was hurt after clashing with Charlie Adam in the first half of QPR’s 3-2 victory over Liverpool on Wednesday.
Traore will definitely miss this weekend’s trip to Sunderland, and is doubtful for the visit of his former club Arsenal to Loftus Road.
But the Senegal international could be available when QPR travel to Old Trafford to face Manchester United on April 8.
"Armand Traore is unavailable," Hughes confirmed to reporters.
"He got injured before half-time in a clash with Charlie Adam.
"Unfortunately, he hasn't made it. He has got a grade one hamstring injury so he could be out for a couple of weeks."
Since joining from Arsenal last summer, Traore has made 20 Premier League appearances for his new side, but has seen his position under threat since the January loan arrival of Taye Taiwo from AC Milan.
