AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has shed some light on the injury situation following the international break.
A number of the Cherries squad returned from playing with their countries with injuries and Howe believes there was one long term injury sustained.
"It was a difficult break for us as there were plenty of injuries," he explained.
"Brad Smith picked up a nasty injury, he's been for one scan but we want to get it confirmed. I think it will be a period of time but I don't have an exact time.
"Ryan Fraser had a hamstring problem, I don't think it's a long term one.
"Joshua King is similar, I don't think him or Ryan are long term absentees but I'll have to make a late decision.
"Everyone else came back fine though."
