Chelsea says Terry out for 'weeks not months'

LONDON (AP) -- Chelsea says captain John Terry will be sidelined for "weeks rather than months'' after his right knee was injured during the Premier League match against Liverpool.

The defender underwent scans on Monday, a day after being carried off during the 1-1 draw following an incident in which Liverpool striker Luis Suarez landed awkwardly on the knee of Terry, whose cruciate ligaments were injured. He later left the ground on crutches.

Chelsea says on its Twitter feed that "MRI Scans reveal no significant damage to John Terry's cruciate ligaments. He will be out weeks rather than months.''

Terry had scored his 50th Chelsea goal in the match at Stamford Bridge before being forced off, but Suarez later equalized.
