Leicestershire one-day captain John Cobb is expected to miss the remainder of the 2014 season because of injury, reports BBC Radio Leicester.

Cobb, 23, fractured his thumb in Sunday's seven-wicket defeat against Derbyshire after being struck on the hand by fast bowler Mark Footitt.

It was hoped the damage to the Foxes all-rounder was not too severe.

But an X-ray has confirmed that the injury means he is unlikely to play again this campaign.
