Westwood will require surgery on his injured shoulder, the Daily Mail reports.

Westwood has battled a number of injuries this season and surgery on his shoulder will certainly keep him out for awhile. Vito Mannone will continue to start in his place.

Westwood (shoulder) is out for Saturday's Premier League match against West Ham, the Sunderland Echo reports.

Westwood still does not have a timeframe for a return, as Vito Mannone fills in as Sunderland's starting keeper.

Westwood, who missed this week's Capital One Cup match against Southampton due to a neck injury, will be assessed ahead of Sunday's Premier League match against Manchester City.

Westwood collided with Hull City's Paul McShane during last weekend's loss and he's obviously not back to 100 percent yet. Vito Mannone would get the start in his favor against a very strong offensive team that scored seven goals last week.

Westwood made three saves but also gave up three goals during Saturday's loss to Arsenal.

Westwood, who gave up two goals in his first two Premier League games this season, has now given up six goals in his last two. He'll hope to break the streak next Saturday at West Brom.

Westwood made four saves but gave up three goals during Saturday's 3-1 loss to Crystal Palace.

Westwood obviously struggled to keep Palace out of the net, allowing goals to Daniel Gabbidon, Dwight Gayle (penalty kick) and Stuart O'Keefe. He has made nine saves in his last two matches, although he's also allowed four goals in that span.

Westwood gave up one goal and failed to make a single save during Saturday's Premier League opener against Fulham.

Fulham managed only one shot on goal, but it ended up being the difference in the side's 1-0 victory. Westwood started only three games last year and he'll have to improve if he wants to keep his spot with the first-team.

David Vaughan, who's goal against Blackburn helped the Black Cats pull off a big comeback win, referred to his goalkeeper Westwood as both "brilliant" and "commanding," The Premier League Official Website reports.

Westwood has allowed six goals in their past five matches, but is gaining confidence and the support of his teammates. He will need every bit of it the next few weeks with away fixtures against Tottenham and QPR before hosting Everton and Manchester City.

With Simon Mignolet waiting to discover how long he will be out after undergoing surgery on his broken nose, Westwood is looking at getting a lot more playing time as the go-to replacement.

Westwood had a great save in his Sunderland debut, and that will certainly give the manager confidence that he can hold his own between the sticks. Look for Westwood to be starting in goal for Sunderland while Mignolet is out.
