Jones could miss at least four weeks due to the hamstring injury he picked up while on international duty, the Telegraph reports. "Jones is injured," manager Louis van Gaal said. "He has hurt his hamstring and will be out for three-four weeks. I don't want to say that because it could put pressure on him to be back in that time, but that is the situation."

New-signing Marcos Rojo is expected to take his place in the starting XI and if he performs well, Jones could have a tough time getting his spot back when he is fit again.

Jones (shoulder) will have two weeks to prove he is fit enough to be part of England's World Cup team with Everton's John Stones to be named as a potential replacement in the England squad, reports the Mirror.

Jones was injured in a collision while facing Hull City. Though ligament damage to his shoulder was confirmed, interim manager Ryan Giggs insisted the player would be fit to play for England.

Interim manager Ryan Giggs confirmed that Jones (shoulder) would be fit for the World Cup after hurting his left shoulder in a collision on Tuesday, reports the Daily Mail.

Jones left Tuesday's match and went to the hospital with his arm in a sling. Immediate reports suggested the injury could take as long as a month to recover from with ligament damage, however the damage is not as bad as feared and Giggs indicated the defender should be fine for the World Cup next month.

Jones (shoulder) was taken to the hospital directly from Tuesday's match against Hull City after a collision with Maynor Figueroa in the first half.

Jones was reportedly wearing a sling as he exited Old Trafford. The injury is worrisome with the World Cup approaching, and the defender will be hopeful that the diagnosis is not very serious.

Jones returned from a hip injury and scored a goal in the 34th minute of Manchester United's 3-0 win over West Brom on Saturday.

Jones was not expected to be fit for another week, so it was surely a boost to see him back on the pitch Saturday. He certainly isn't a big-time goal scorer, and he makes for a tough short-term fantasy play, with matches against Liverpool, West Ham, and Manchester City coming up.
