The GOOD news is that Cole has not broken any bone.

The BAD news, he is expected to be out for a fortnight with an ankle sprain he suffered at the weekend.

The 25-year-old, who made his England debut last week against Spain, limped out of the FA Cup fifth-round draw against Middlesbrough at Upton Park.

There were fears the striker had suffered a serious injury but a statement from the club read: "A positive X-ray on Sunday showed no fracture and, ahead of an MRI scan to come, it is hoped the sprain could lead to only a two-week absence at worst."
