Fulham winger Bryan Ruiz will miss the rest of the season after suffering a broken foot in Saturday's Barclays Premier League win over Bolton Wanderers.
The 26-year-old Costa Rica international was carried off with 17 minutes left to play in Fulham's 3-0 victory at the Reebok Stadium.
And after Fulham's 1-1 draw with Chelsea on Monday night, the club confirmed that Ruiz had broken a metatarsal in his foot.
"He broke his foot so he will be out until June or July," said Fulham boss Martin Jol. "It is a metatarsal issue."
Ruiz joined Fulham last August from FC Twente and has made 27 League appearances, scoring two goals.
