James Collins: West Ham man injury doubt for Wales' World Cup qualifiers
West Ham centre-back James Collins could be a doubt for Wales' World Cup qualifying double-header in October because of an ankle injury.
Collins, 34, was forced off during Saturday's goalless draw at West Brom.
Wales, who are second in Group D, visit Georgia on 6 October before hosting the Republic of Ireland three days later.
"It looked like it was going to be a few months but, touch wood, it's only going to be a couple of weeks," said West Ham manager Slaven Bilic.
"It's a big blow, it could be worse, to be fair.
"He has done the scan and it's not ideal. But to be fair I expected worse based on how he got injured and all that."
Collins is used as back-up by Wales, who prefer Ashley Williams, Ben Davies and James Chester as their central defenders.
Former Cardiff City and Aston Villa player Collins last played for his country in the 4-0 World Cup qualifying win over Moldova in September 2016.
