AS Roma winger Mohamed Salah is a doubt for Sunday’s Derby della Capitale against Lazio in the Serie A, after picking up an injury during training. 

Salah was forced out of training on Wednesday after reportedly picking up an ankle injury when he received a heavy knock to his right ankle from Thomas Vermaelen.

The Egypt international will undergo a medical test on Thursday to determine the extent of his injury, and the recovery period he will require. Salah might be out for a few weeks, according to Sky Sport Italia.

This would be a blow to the Giallarossi, as the 24-year-old has been an integral player for AS Roma this season, scoring eight goals and assisting four others in 14 league matches.

Roma occupy the second spot in the league table with 29 points, four points behind leaders Juventus and one point ahead of Lazio.
