Roy Keane has cracked two ribs and will be out for around three weeks
according to reports. Apparently he did it during the first game of the season at
Chelsea but he has been playing on due to the lack of available first team players at OT so far this season.

After last night's match Fergie admitted:

"He has been in a bit of pain the last two or three games and it is too big a risk to play him now,"

"We took him for a scan and it (the injury) was much more pronounced than

"If he took a bang in a game he could puncture a lung and that could put him out for months."

'He was really feeling it. He is going to be out for three weeks which is a bit of a blow.'
