Sam Field has been spotted using crutches after the West Brom midfielder was stretched off in Charlton’s 2-1 defeat to Bristol City on Wednesday night.
The 21-year-old, who joined the Addicks on a season-long loan from Albion in the summer, was forced off the pitch in the second half after receiving treatment for several minutes.
BBC London Sport journalist Louis Mendez posted an image of Field after the match at Ashton Gate, showing the midfielder with crutches and wearing a knee brace.

It remains to be seen how serious Field’s injury is but Lee Bowyer has been quoted by the Birmingham Mail as saying it does “not look promising” for the loaned-out Baggies ace.
He has made 10 appearances in all competitions during his loan spell at Charlton this season after joining the London club in early August.
There is no doubt that Field was sent on loan to The Valley to earn precious game-time in order to aid his development as last season, the England youth international only made 12 league appearances for West Brom.
It seemed as though he was on course to play a lot more than that for Charlton this term but it now seems extremely likely that this injury setback is going to throw a spanner into the works.
