Wigan manager Roberto Martinez fears Ivan Ramis has suffered a cruciate ligament injury that could end his season.
The Spanish centre-back had to be taken off on a stretcher toward the end of the 1-1 draw with Fulham at Craven Cottage. Ramis appeared to twist his knee in a tackle with Dimitar Berbatov and Martinez expects bad news for the summer signing.
"That is the real negative of the afternoon," the Wigan boss said. "I thought Ivan was outstanding throughout the game. I think you are starting to see a centre-half that has adapted to the British game and is someone very, very important."
