Carroll is scheduled to have surgery on his injured left knee next week, and he is expected to miss the rest of the season, the BBC reports.

Carroll initially suffered the injury back in January, but he returned to fitness and was came on as a second-half sub Wednesday against Southampton. However, he re-injured his knee but could not come off the pitch, as the Hammers had already used their three subs. It's another hit to a player that has been injury-plagued for the last few years. Enner Valencia and Diafra Sakho will continue to lead the attack in Carroll's absence.

Carroll re-injured his knee Wednesday against Southampton and could miss several weeks, the BBC reports. "He got kicked in the back of the knee and felt something wrong," manager Sam Allardyce said. "It's going to take longer this time because it's the same injury."

West Ham went down to 10 men in the second half and Carroll had to continue playing despite the ailment because the Hammers had already used all three subs. Enner Valencia and Diafra Sakho will continue to start up front in Carroll's absence.

Carrol (ankle) will be on the bench for Wednesday's match at Southampton.

Carrol should be avoided Wednesday, but placement on the bench makes it promising that he'll be in the starting XI soon after recovering from injury.

Manager Sam Allardyce said Tuesday that Carroll (ankle) will have a late fitness test before Wednesday's game against Southampton.

Carroll has been instrumental in the West Ham attack this season, playing well with both Diafra Sakho and Enner Valencia. If he's unable to pass fit, the latter two will start again.

Carroll could be sidelined for up to two weeks because of an ankle injury suffered last Saturday against Liverpool, the Daily Mail reports.

Manager Sam Allardyce said Sunday that Carroll will get scans on the injury in the coming days to help determine the extent of the issue, but he appears highly unlikely to play Sunday against Manchester United. Enner Valencia could get the start up front with Carlton Cole, as Diafra Sakho may have to continue to sit due to issues with his absence from the Africa Cup of Nations.

Carroll put one shot on target and played a forgettable 63 minutes Saturday against Liverpool before exiting with an apparent knee injury.

Carroll's late tackle on Emre Can included both insult and injury as he picked up a yellow card before limping off the field. While the injury is not believed to be serious, it is uncertain whether Carroll will be able to feature in Sunday's meeting with Manchester United.

Carroll opened the scoring with his fifth goal of the season in West Hamís 3-0 win over Hull City on Sunday.

Carroll was the first to reach an Enner Valencia rebound that Allan McGregor couldnít get a hold of. Otherwise, Carroll put in a fairly quiet shift, but complimented the attack nicely. West Ham returns to Premier League action on Jan. 31 against a Liverpool team just one point behind them in the table.

Carroll scored his fourth goal of the season in Saturday's 1-1 draw against Swansea City.

Carroll displayed brilliant skill to control Stewart Downing's cross and elude multiple defenders in the box before curling a shot into the top right corner. The goal was Carroll's only shot on target as West Ham struggled to convert quality play on the flanks into true scoring opportunities. Carroll will look to continue his good form next weekend against a Hull City side currently sitting in the relegation zone.
