West Brom's Reid played against Arsenal with broken leg
LONDON (REUTERS) - West Bromwich Albion right back Steven Reid played the second half of their 2-0 defeat at Arsenal in early December with a fractured fibula, manager Steve Clarke said on Thursday.
Reid is unlikely to feature in Saturday's Premier League derby against Aston Villa at the Hawthorns after taking a knock in the same area as a late substitute in Tuesday's 1-0 FA Cup third round replay loss at home to Queens Park Rangers.
"Steven went to see the doctor this morning," said Clarke who is hoping the Irishman will be back in training next week.
"He has been out for a number of weeks and we didn't release the full nature of the injury. It was a fractured fibula against Arsenal and he effectively played 45 minutes with a broken leg.
