Wayne Rooney Knocked Out Of Match With Gruesome Leg Gash [UPDATE]S

Fulham's Hugo Rodallega landed upon Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney's leg in stoppage time of Man U's 3-2 win today and sliced open Rooney's leg, forcing him to be carted off in another blow to the Red Devils' corps.

Rooney didn't even start today's match—Robin van Persie getting his first start for the squad—but the injury will likely knock him out for at least one match given the number of stitches necessary to close the gaping wound. [Fox Soccer]

Update (12:34 p.m.): The Daily Mail is reporting he will miss a month of action.
