It later transpired that the 23-year-old had suffered a stress response rather than a fracture, however, and he has now targeted a run in the R's first team.
"I'm very happy to be back because about a month ago I was told I had a fracture in my shin - a broken leg. They told me I was out for at least six months. It happened against Norwich when (Robert) Snodgrass gave me a big tackle," Traore told the Fulham Chronicle.
"I went to see a specialist, who said there was no fracture but a stress response, which meant that if I keep playing on it, it will snap. It was a big relief. I'm very happy but I'm still a bit scared - my confidence is not there.
"I hope it should be OK now. I'm just going to have to wait and see. I just want to build up my confidence now and play as regularly as I can. I know what I can do and just want to stay injury-free and push on."
Traore joined QPR from Arsenal in 2011.
