Gibbs suffered a hip injury in Saturday's 2-0 victory at Sunderland, eventually leaving the game in the 74th minute.

Gibbs's absence was certainly felt - Hector Bellerin played rather poorly in his stead. No word yet on how much time Gibbs could miss. He was dealing with a nagging hamstring problem earlier this year.

Gibbs suffered the injury during Arsenal's Premier League opener against Crystal Palace and was originally given a two-to-three week timetable for return, which he will blow through before the international break.

Gibbs is expected to miss 2-3 weeks with his hamstring injury, according to James Olley of the London Evening Standard.

Nacho Monreal replaced Gibbs in Saturday's victory over Crystal Palace, and might be a de-facto starter going forward. Gibbs is a respected starter but probably the weakest player on Arsenal's back line - the defense shouldn't have a major drop-off with Gibbs out.
