Frazer Richardson is set to be sidelined for around three months after dislocating his shoulder during Southampton's pre-season training camp in Switzerland.
The 27-year-old full-back, who recently joined the Saints from Charlton, landed awkwardly after attempting a headed clearance in a routine training session.
He immediately flew back to the UK for a scan and operation, which is said to have gone smoothly.
