Cole may be out for rest of season with knee injury

Chelsea's Ashley Cole could be forced to spend the rest of the season on the sidelines after suffering what appeared to be a serious knee injury last night.

The defender suffered the injury just after the half-time break in his side's 3-0 Premiership win over Blackburn.

Manager Jose Mourinho said afterwards that the knock appeared serious as the 26-year-old was unable to walk.

"We will have to wait a couple of days before we know what it is, but this kind of injury normally ends in surgery, so I fear the worst," he said.
