WOLVERHAMPTON, England -- Wolverhampton will be without captain Karl Henry for the next two months because of a knee injury, it was confirmed on Monday.

Henry suffered the injury in Saturday's 2-1 defeat against Blackpool and he was forced off the field after an hour of play.

"Karl is out for two months with medial knee ligament damage," confirmed Wolves manager Mick McCarthy. "He's had a scan and I think there's a slight tear. It's a huge blow, especially with Dave Edwards out with a thigh strain.

"Karl's been great and has been an ever-present unless he's been injured - and the injuries he's had have been serious, with his knee and a damaged spleen. It's a big loss."

Henry has made 12 appearances for Wolves so far this season, but the club will miss him over the next two months as it tries to climb out of the relegation zone.
