Tomkins is out indefinitely after suffering a dislocated shoulder in training this week, The Guardian reports.

The injury comes at a terrible time for West Ham, who are already without Winston Reid (calf), while Carl Jenkinson is ineligible to face Arsenal on Saturday due to terms of his loan agreement. Cheikhou Kouyate could start in central defense while Tomkins is out.

Tomkins returned from a hip injury, and played the full 90 minutes of West Ham's 2-0 victory over Tottenham on Saturday.

Tomkins suffered the injury last week against West Brom, and there was some speculation post match that the English defender could miss the two remaining matches of the season. That was not the case, and instead, fantasy owners were treated to a clean sheet, Tomkins' 11th of the season.

Tompkins was removed from West Ham's 0-1 loss to West Brom with an apparent hip/thigh injury.

Tompkins may miss the final two matches of the season, which wouldn't be a huge blow for fantasy owners, since the likelihood of a clean sheet are slim with fixtures against Tottenham and Manchester City to close things out.
