QPR assessing Cousins’ latest injury

QPR midfielder Jordan Cousins

QPR are assessing how long Jordan Cousins is likely to be sidelined with his latest injury.

Ian Holloway believes the midfielder could be unavailable for up to six weeks, but the Rangers manager is awaiting a verdict from the club’s medical staff.

Cousins has another hamstring injury, having been plagued by a similar problem soon after his move to Loftus Road from Charlton last year.

He then missed the second half of last season with a thigh injury but hopes were high that he would start the new campaign fully fit.

“He probably won’t be available for five or six weeks, but I need to check that with my physio,” said Holloway.

“We didn’t anticipate it (another injury), the way he was looking and the way he was moving.

“But the boy is in a great state of mind because he knows it’s not the same injury it was before.

“If it was the same injury as before then that would be more worrying. This is a different thing, so that’s unlucky.

“He’s in a fantastic place in his head, because he’s starting to believe he’s the fantastic athlete he is.”

Grant Hall is also set to miss the start of the new campaign as he is still struggling with tendonitis.
