Sir Alex Ferguson estimates Rio Ferdinand will be out of action for two weeks after missing Manchester United's victory over Birmingham.

Ferdinand was forced to pull out with a thigh injury, with Ferguson claiming before the game that his £29.1million defender will be going for a scan on Monday morning.

However, the United boss has now put a timescale on the problem and said: "I would imagine Rio will be out for two weeks."
