Riise suffered what is believed to be a hamstring injury during Sunday's FA Cup match against Sheffield United, according to the Daily Telegraph.

Riise had to be subbed off just 10 minutes into the match due to the injury, hurting himself on a sliding challenge on Ryan Flynn. The severity of the injury won't be known until he undergoes a scan, but he should be considered an injury doubt for Tuesday's Premier League match against Swansea City.

Riise has mentioned he may weigh his options of leaving Fulham in January if his playing time does not increase, Get West London reports.

Riise has featured in just two of Fulham's Premier league matches this season. This is considerably less than previous years in which Riise was in the Starting XI for the majority of Fulham's matches. It is uncertain if his declaration will have any impact on his playing time, but regardless of the outcome he will continue to have very little fantasy value.
