Fulham captain Tom Cairney is likely to miss a few weeks of the season, manager Slavisa Jokanovic has confirmed.
Cairney suffered a foot injury during the 4-2 victory against Burnley on Sunday and was replaced by Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa on 78 minutes.
He later withdrew from the Scotland squad that will face Belgium and Albania.
"Tom Cairney is going to be unavailable for the Brighton game," Jokanovic said."He has a foot injury and we still need to assess him but it is our expectation that he will be unavailable for a few weeks.
"We must assess him, he is going to be out for a few weeks. Yes, this is a big loss for us."
Meanwhile, winger Neeskens Kebano will also miss about a month after picking up an ankle injury in Tuesday's Carabao Cup win over Exeter.
Floyd Ayite and Tim Ream also remain injured for this weekend's game at Brighton.
