Former Chelsea star Victor Moses could be set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines after suffering an injury during Spartak Moscow's 2-0 win against Ural on matchday four in the Russian Premier League on Saturday, August 6.
The most unpleasant incident of the game happened just past the half hour mark when the winger was stretchered off the pitch.
Replays confirmed that the former Nigeria international made no contact with an opponent before he hit the turf and couldn't get up on his own.
According to Sport Express, Moses left the stadium in Yekaterinburg on crutches and his right leg was in a brace.
The 2013 Africa Cup of Nations winner has been arguably Spartak Moscow's best player in the new season, scoring two goals in three matches before the trip to Ekaterinburg Arena.
Moses missed almost the whole of pre-season preparations because he was undecided about returning to Russia.
He is expected to undergo an MRI scan in the coming days to determine the severity of his injury and the likely length of his layoff.
