Genoa Forward Rodrigo Palacio Ruled Out Until Mid-November - Report

Genoa striker Rodrigo Palacio will be sidelined until mid-November, according to reports emanating from the peninsula.

The Argentine was replaced at half-time in the Grifoni's 2-1 loss to Roma on Saturday evening and tests on Monday have confirmed that he has suffered a thigh muscle strain in his right leg. The 28-year-old will likely be out of action for up to four weeks, according to La Repubblica.

This comes as a huge blow to Genoa, who have started the 2010-11 campaign in disappointing fashion, sitting in 11th spot in the Serie A table with just eights points from seven league fixtures.
