Benik Afobe suffered a knee injury in training during AFC Bournemouth's current preseason tour in the United States and the striker will have a scan when the club returns home
According to Eddie Howe, Afobe "just took a knock to the knee" so it was not a major contact injury and the odds are it isn't too serious. While that means Afobe may not miss any time when the regular season begins, it eliminates his chances of impressing his manager in the preseason in the fight for regular playing time when league play gets underway. Callum Wilson has already bagged a brace on this current tour and looks to be the clear-cut first choice striker when the Cherries open up against Manchester United in three weeks' time.
