Reading midfielder Jem Karacan is set to miss up to six weeks with the knee injury that kept him out of Saturday's thrilling 3-3 draw with Fulham.

The 23-year-old underwent scans this week after he sustained the injury during the 1-0 defeat at Liverpool seven days ago.

Karacan missed the start of the season as he battled back from a four-month lay-off due to an ankle injury and he faces yet more time out.
