Sturridge will be sidelined for four months after undergoing hip surgery this week, and he will miss the start of the 2015/16 Premier League season, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Sturridge is estimated to be able to return to full training some time in September, which means it could be October before he's back in the starting XI. The Premier League schedule even starts early next season in preparation for the Euros next summer, so it's possible Sturridge could miss up to 10 games. It will be the third straight year he's failed to be fully fit at the start of a season.

Sturridge announced on Instagram that he had hip surgery Tuesday.

Sturridge has been battling the hip ailment for well over a month, and he was believed to be in the United States to help with his rehab. However, the trip turned out to be more serious, and the surgery will certainly rule him out for the rest of the Premier League season, with the hope that he can be fully fit for the start of next season.

The striker flew to see Dr. Asnis that is linked to the Boston Red Sox. This is the second time Sturridge went stateside to receive treatment, and is expected to miss the remaining games this season.

Sturridge (hip) is considered day-to-day but may be in danger of sitting out the rest of the season for precautionary reasons according to manager Brendan Rodgers.

Sturridge sat out the past three matches and seems to be in danger of missing Tuesday's fixture against Hull City, and beyond. Rodgers should shed some light on this situation moving forward but there's an overwhelming concern for Sturridge's long-term viability with the squad if he were to continue playing through his hip injury. Mario Balotelli and Philippe Coutinho will likely continue to benefit for the duration of Sturridge's stint on the bench.

Sturridge (hip) will have a late fitness test of Sunday's FA Cup semifinal against Aston Villa.

Sturridge is currently dealing with a knock to his hip and his availability won't be unveiled until closer to kickoff. His unexpected availability makes him a hard player to utilize Sunday, and it might be wise to consider other options in the event that the 25-year-old is ruled out at the last moment.

Sturridge (hip) has not returned to full training yet, and he could miss Sunday's FA Cup semifinal against Aston Villa, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Sturridge was surprisingly left out of Monday's Premier League match against Newcastle until manager Brendan Rodgers said he was unable to play because of a knock he picked up the previous weekend against Blackburn. Raheem Sterling will likely continue to lead the line in Sturridge's absence, though Mario Balotelli could get some playing time after recovering from illness and injury.

Sturridge is out for Monday's match against Newcastle after picking up a knock during last week's FA Cup match against Blackburn.

There was no indication from the club that Sturridge suffered an injury, making Monday's news very tough for fantasy owners to swallow. Raheem Sterling will start up front again in place of Sturridge.
