Irish rugby player Jonathan Sexton could be out injured for two months after breaking his jaw.
Sexton will now miss the start of the new European Rugby Champions League.
It’s also feared that Sexton may not be able to feature in the Autumn Internationals, with a clash against South Africa scheduled for November 8th.
The Irish international sustained the injury in Racing Metro’s Top 14 clash against Toulon on Saturday night.
Racing won the game 17-10.
Sexton was tackled by South African hooker Craig Burden after 15 minutes.
Sexton managed to kick two conversions but came off later in the game.
The Irish Independent understands that the Lions fly-half has reached an agreement with the IRFU and the province on a four-year contract from the start of the 2015/16 campaign.
