Sheffield Wednesday's Chris Lines faces three months out with a groin injury.

Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Chris Lines will miss three months after it was revealed that he has suffered a serious groin injury.

Lines acquired the problem in the club's pre-season friendly at Kilmarnock, and manager Dave Jones has revealed that the 26-year-old could be out until November.

Jones said: "Chris is facing eight to 12 weeks out. It's not great but it is a lot better than we thought it was on Saturday."

Lines made 41 appearances for the Owls as they were promoted to the Championship last season.
