    Wayne Rooney faces 3 weeks out with knee injury

    Manchester: Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney faces spending up to three weeks out with a knee injury.

    Manager Alex Ferguson says the injury was sustained while the player tried to hit a volley toward the end of training on Tuesday.

    Ferguson says Rooney "strained a ligament behind the knee. It's unfortunate, and he could be out for two to three weeks."

    The England international missed United's 4-3 win over Newcastle on Wednesday. Ferguson didn't specify which knee was injured.
