Mikael Silvestre to be out for six weeks

  French defender Mikael Silvestre will be out for about six weeks after suffering a you guess what—yes, a broken metatarsal.

The former Rennes leftback suffered the injury in the loss against Arsenal earlier this month, a game in which he was replaced by Patrice Evra after playing some 20 odd minutes.

United do have options at leftback with Evra and Heinze both available. Heinze though hasn’t played much this season owing to injury. Evra has attacking capabilities for a fullback, although his defensive skills can sometime leave much to be desired.
