The Scotland midfielder - bought from Norwich in June - was injured during his new club's 1-0 win at QPR on the opening day of the Premier League season.

And a scan today will determine whether Snodgrass also suffered ligament damage which would require surgery.

Speaking after his side's 1-0 win at Loftus Road on Saturday, Hull manager Steve Bruce said: "Snodgrass is a concern. He's twisted his knee. He's in a brace and crutches at the moment - touch wood he's not too bad.

"We fear ligament damage and, if it is, it'll obviously be a long time. Hopefully it's not."

Snodgrass wrote on Twitter: "Gutted ....!!! But I will work as hard as I can to come back fitter and stronger."
