The 28-year-old featured in ten games for the Bluebirds before his injury, and will now look to recover under the watchful eye of the Cardiff City medical staff and manager Neil Harris for the next few months.
Cunningham’s injury has come at a poor time for the Bluebirds, with them being light on left-back cover across the past few months, Joe Bennett currently being the only senior option on the left of defence at the club.

The 29-year-old has recently spoken out about the potential of a new left-back arriving at the club to challenge him for his place, stating that he would welcome the added competition for a spot in the starting XI.
When Bennett was ruled out for a couple of games a few weeks ago with an eye injury, right-back Jazz Richards deputised in his place.
Cardiff have done the right thing by bringing Cunningham back to the club for the rest of his recovery period, after Blackburn would have done all they could to help him.
The Bluebirds can now keep a watchful eye on the defender themselves, as he eyes up a return to action later on this calendar year from his injury.
