Carroll tore ligaments in his left ankle while on West Ham's preseason tour in New Zealand, and he is expected to be sidelined for up to four months, the Daily Mail reports.

The initial belief was that it was only a minor injury and that he could return with intensive treatment, but club doctors discovered the ligament issue, which will require surgery. Carroll has been the definition of an injury-plagued player, and he will provide very little, if any, fantasy value until possibly December.

Carroll suffered a dislocated finger during Sunday's Premier League match against Everton, the Daily Mail reports.

Carroll, who came off the bench in the 29th minute, was able to get the finger popped back in by the physios and continue on. The injury doesn't figure to keep him out of The Hammers' next league match, which comes March 15 at Stoke City.

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce said the club will appeal the red card Carroll was given during Saturday's match against Swansea, the Daily Mail reports.

Carroll hit Chico Flores on the top of the head during the match, but the Swans defender immediately covered his face, which prompted the referee to hand Carroll a straight red. If the appeal is granted, Carroll will likely be back in the starting XI for Saturday's match at Aston Villa. If the ban is upheld, he'll be out until March 1 and return to face Everton at Goodison Park.

Carroll provided two assists but was sent off in West Ham's 2-0 victory over Swansea on Saturday.

Carroll will most likely face a three-game ban after receiving a straight red card in The Hammers' much needed victory. The big Englishman looked to be getting back up to speed after a long injury absence, creating both chances for teammate Kevin Nolan.

Carroll made his first appearance of the season and recorded an assist, after coming on for fellow-striker Carlton Cole in the 72nd minute of West Ham's 2-0 victory over Cardiff City on Saturday.

After a lengthy absence and unclear timetable back to action, Carroll found his way onto the pitch for the Hammers. Big Andy will most likely be used as a substitute over the next few matches to get back up to speed, but it is good news for manager Sam Allardyce and fantasy owners to see Carroll's name back on the score sheet.
