Diame is hoping to return from his knee injury March 14 against Leicester City, the Hull Daily Mail reports.

Diame was expected to already be back from the injury, but he suffered a setback last week during training and had his return date pushed back. The Hull attack has picked up a bit lately, but it's far more dangerous when he's on the pitch.

Diame suffered a setback in training his week and he will not play Saturday against QPR. "Mo took a knock to his knee Monday so we've taken him off it all week," manager Steve Bruce said. "We did some precautionary scans and x-rays and thankfully everything is ok. It has set him back a while but we donít think it will be too long and we hope that he can be joining in with training again by the middle of next week.Ē

The Hull attack has been brutally inefficient without Diame, and they'll have to fight a potential relegation battle this weekend without him. If he can return to training next week, he may be able to make his return Feb. 28 against Stoke City.

Diame (knee) is expected to play Saturday against QPR, the Hull Daily Mail reports.

Diame suffered the injury in early December and there was talk that he could even miss the rest of the season because of the injury. However, he has returned to fitness and has even put in extra training sessions this week to make himself fully available to face QPR. The Hull attack have greatly struggled without him and has a completely different look with him on the pitch.

Diame will miss Saturday's trip to Newcastle United, but the team is hopeful he will be able to return to full training within the next 10 days, reports the Hull Daily Mail.

Diame played an integral role in Hull City's attack before injuring his knee back in December. If he is able to return this season, he will likely be eased back into the rotation to prevent any further damaged to such a key contributor to the club.

Hull City manager Steve Bruce said Tuesday that Diame could miss the rest of the season because of his knee injury. "Diame is still in a knee brace and has another couple of weeks in the brace," Bruce said. "He's been in the knee brace for the last few weeks now and he's still a long way off from making a full recovery." He added, "There is a possibility that Diame could be out for the rest of the season, and it all depends on how he is when he comes out of the brace. We will just have to wait and see and hope that nature takes its cause."

Diame was one of Hull's best attacking options this season, scoring four goals in his first eight Premier League matches. However, after suffering the injury Dec. 3 against Everton, the Tigers' attack has gone nearly silent and things aren't looking up if Diame is unable to return this season.

Diame's scans on his knee revealed tendonitis and he received a series of injections to help recover, reports the Hull Daily Mail. The club is hopeful that seeing a specialist will speed up the recovery. However, club manager, Steve Bruce, noted they will not rush the midfielder back into action for fear the injury will flare up again.

Hull have really struggled offensively of late, and Diame's goal streak back in October feels like it happened years ago. He is out for Saturday's match against West Brom and will likely miss the next weekend against Chelsea. The club is hopeful for his return during the holiday stretch, but that will depend on how well he responds to treatment.

Diame will have scans on his knee Thursday to determine the extent of the injury he suffered in Wednesday's match against Everton, and he could miss six weeks if he needs an injection, according to the Hull Daily Mail.

Hull have really struggled offensively of late, and Diame's goal streak back in October feels like it happened years ago. The club will reveal more after the scans are reviewed, but he certainly seems highly unlikely to face West Brom on Saturday or Chelsea the following week.

Diame was in Hull City's Starting XI for Wednesday's match against Everton, but was subbed off in the 53rd minute with an apparent knee injury.

Diame had attempted just one shot before exiting the match early. While the injury is a concern, so to is his drop in production since the return of Nikica Jelavic to the lineup.
