Yeovil Town striker Joel Grant is set to miss the start of the League One season after damaging a ligament on international duty.
The 26-year-old has returned to Huish Park following a summer of international involvement with Jamaica and will undergo a course of rehabilitation.
Grant made his debut for The Reggae Boyz at the end of May and went onto make a further three appearances for his country in the summer, scoring once against Egypt.
The former Wycombe man was taking part in a gym session when he damaged a ligament in his left foot, ruling him out of any further pre-season preparation with the Yeovil squad.
Speaking to the Western Gazette, Glovers boss Gary Johnson conceded we won’t be seeing Grant in the first team anytime soon:
“Joel Grant is in a medical boot for three weeks, unfortunately. He played four games for Jamaica in 14 days, which was probably too many.
“He came back and was doing some work on the treadmill when he hurt the side of his foot. It’s ligament damage, which unfortunately needs a boot and he probably won’t be around until the middle of August.”
Grant signed for Yeovil last summer and scored three times in 34 appearances as the club were relegated from the Championship.
