Ben Foster limped out of Manchester United's reserve team clash with Blackburn at Northwich on Thursday night.
The England international twisted an ankle during the goalless draw and was replaced by Ron-Robert Zieler after 57 minutes.
Foster is now facing another spell on the sidelines, following from a series of previous injury setbacks.
Foster missed most of last season following cruciate ligament surgery.
