Dzeko will miss Croatia's Euro 2016 qualifying match against Israel after suffering a serious calf strain that could keep him out of action for up to three weeks, according to the Daily Mail.

Dzeko was a second-half substitute for Manchester City against Queens Park Rangers on Saturday, but had to return to the bench after just four minutes. Losing their star striker dims Bosnia's hopes for advancing from their group.

Dzeko came on for Fernandinho in the 64th minute but had to be subbed off just three minutes later after picking up a calf injury, according to Stu Brennan of the Manchester Evening News.

Dzeko will undergo scans Sunday, but the injury could very well keep him out over the international break.

Dzeko scored against Belgium to help Bosnia-Herzegovina draw 1-1 in their European qualifying match on Monday.

Dzeko helped his side take the lead in the first half, though Belgium was able to equalize in the 51st minute.

Dzeko scored in the 11th and 68th minutes during Manchester City's 4-2 win over Hull City on Saturday.

Dzeko is red hot right now, scoring four goals in his last two matches after bagging a brace against Sheffield Wednesday in the Capital One Cup. With Stevan Jovetic still battling a hamstring injury, Dzeko should continue to see plenty of playing time up front with Sergio Aguero.

Dzeko (back) started and played 69 minutes of Manchester City's Premier League match against Chelsea on Sunday, taking three shots but none landed on goal.

Dzeko was dealing with a back issue heading into the match, but he was obviously fit enough to start. With Stevan Jovetic continuing to battle a hamstring injury, Dzeko should continue to see enough playing time to keep him relevant in most fantasy formats.

Dzeko felt soreness in his back following Manchester City's Champions League match at Bayern Munich on Wednesday, but he is expected to be available for Sunday's Premier League match against Chelsea, manager Manuel Pellegrini said Friday.

Stevan Jovetic has been ruled out with a hamstring injury, leaving Dzeko to likely come off the bench against Chelsea, with Sergio Aguero in the starting XI. Dzeko has yet to score this season, but he gets enough playing time that his first score will come sooner rather than later.

Dzeko is available off the bench for Manchester City's Premier League match against Stoke City on Saturday.

Dzeko picked up a small knock on his thigh last Monday against Liverpool, and with a fully fit Sergio Aguero, manager Manuel Pellegrini can afford to rest Dzeko. With Aguero just returning to the starting lineup, it wouldn't be surprised if Dzeko did feature at some point Saturday.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini confirmed Friday that Alvaro Negredo is the only injury City are facing, which means Dzeko should be available to face Stoke City.

Dzeko took a boot to the thigh Monday against Liverpool and had to be removed from the game, but it is apparently not serious enough to hold him out. Pellegrini did add that Sergio Aguero may still be limited, which means he and Dzeko could split time next to Stevan Jovetic.
