LONDON Wigan Athletic midfielder Ben Watson suffered a broken leg in his side's 3-0 Premier League defeat at Liverpool on Saturday.
"It is a broken leg and we will see the extent of the break and what treatment he needs," Wigan manager Roberto Martinez told reporters after the former England Under-21 international challenged for a high ball with Raheem Sterling.
"Both were looking at the ball - it's a real accident. It's a nasty collision.
"The injury affected us too much. We are really going to miss him," added the Spaniard, whose perennial strugglers are 15th, two points above the drop zone.
