The Republic of Ireland international hurt his left ankle in a challenge with Wolves defender Kevin Foley during the second half of the 2-1 win at Molineux on Saturday.

Cox was taken straight to the Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham for preliminary X-rays which revealed no obvious fracture, but he is still facing a spell on the sidelines.

He tweeted: "Morning yes I'm out for around 2 months but it feels better and better each day. I wanna be back ASAP to help the lads achieve our goal."

Cox, 25, joined Forest from West Brom for £2million in August and has scored five goals in 17 appearances for the club since then.
