QPR have been hit with some major injury news following their goalless draw with Bournemouth in the Championship on Saturday.
Midfielder Luke Amos was replaced by Tom Carroll in the latter stages at the Vitality Stadium, and following a scan, the former Tottenham man has suffered damage to his ACL in his right knee.
Amos had featured in all five of QPR’s Championship matches this term, but will now undergo surgery on the injury and then miss nine months – ruling him out for the remainder of the campaign.
The 23-year-old joined Rangers permanently from Spurs earlier this summer after a successful loan spell at Loftus Road last season in which he played 35 times in all competitions.
But Amos now won’t play again after suffering a rupture to his ACL for the second time in three seasons after sustaining the exact same problem just days after making his Premier League debut for Tottenham against Newcastle United back in August 2018 which forced him out of action for almost 12 months.
Having made such a bright start to the campaign, QPR fans were understandably devastated at the news of the extent of Amos’ injury.
You can see some of their best reactions below, including a classy response from Bournemouth’s official Twitter account.

Damn that is so screwed up, just as you were coming on top form. Just work with the physios, they are your besties from now on. Listen, work and don't get down.

He was really playing well v Bournemouth too, his best game in the hoops yet. Fingers crossed for him – he will come back stronger
