Rojo (shoulder) underwent an operation to prevent the problem from recurring, because he also suffered from this injury last year, the BBC reports.

Rojo expects to be out for about four weeks following the operation, however, the Red Devils will not say how long he'll be out for sure. Boss Louis van Gaal has very few options at defense, after Chris Smalling and Matteo Darmian were injured against Wolfsburg.

Rojo is expected to be sidelined long-term after suffering a dislocated shoulder during training Wednesday, manager Louis van Gaal confirmed Friday.

Rojo was finally starting to get regular playing time, but he'll sit out after suffering a similar injury to one he had last season. There are a few different options for van Gaal to use at leftback, with Ashley Young a likely possibility.

Rojo dislocated his shoulder in training on Wednesday and will be out of action for an unknown amount of time, reports Sky Sports.

This is the second shoulder dislocation for the defender. The extent of the injury is not yet known, but he did not have surgery on the first injury. This leaves Manchester United heavily short on defensive players for their match against West Ham on Saturday.

Rojo recorded an assist and picked up a yellow card in a 3-0 win over Everton on Saturday.

This was only his second game starting and he has clean sheets in both appearances. It will be tough for manager Louis Van Gaal to pull out Rojo with this recent success, and he very well may be a nice add in fantasy leagues if he continues to start.

Rojo (hamstring) is starting Saturday against Everton.

Daley Blind will move to the bench for Rojo, who has struggled to stay fit during his time at Manchester United and has already been on a short leash from manager Louis van Gaal.

Rojo is fit enough after his hamstring injury and will be available for selection in the visit to Goodison Park on Saturday, according to The Daily Star.

Since Luke Shaw injury manager Louis van Gaal has been trying out different options for a solid replacement for the young back. Rojo was the first choice to slot in the problematic left back before his own injury, so if hes fully fit by game day hell be expected to be the favorite for the starting nod at that position in the crucial visit to Everton.

Rojo (hamstring) picked up an injury against Southampton and will miss Saturday's match against Sunderland.

Rojo's injury seems to be more serious than he originally let on after playing through it against Southampton. His absence leaves United with a dearth of options in the back and may force Phil Jones into action ahead of schedule.

Rojo is expected to miss at least two matches because of a hamstring injury, the Daily Telegraph reports.

Rojo suffered the injury during last weekend's match against Southampton, but he reportedly didn't tell the medical stuff until well after the match. His absence is a big hit to United, who are already without Luke Shaw (leg), which could force Daley Blind to play leftback, with Michael Carrick moving to centerback until Phil Jones (illness) is back to full fitness.
