Steve Bruce revealed post-match on Saturday that Robbie Brady suffered a "horrible calf injury" in training which could sideline the midfielder [come defender] for "weeks or maybe months."
The news of his absence will come as a massive blow to the Tigers as Brady has been in great form and this latest setback effectively rules the player out of a number of crucial games against teams around them at the bottom including Sunderland and Leicester City. Bruce was also forced into two other changes prior to the loss at the Britannia as the boss decided not to risk top scorer Nikica Jelavic – the striker is managing an ongoing knee complaint and cannot play two games in quick succession though he should be available on Tuesday. The in-form Dame N’Doye was also restricted to a place on the bench after spending most of last week travelling to Russia presumably tying up loose ends following his last-minute move during the January window.

Robbie Brady has had an up and down season from a fantasy point of view and he was "up" again in Week 26.

Brady has seen just about everything this season. Strong form. Poor form. Position change. Injury. Playing predominantly as a left back these days, Brady's fantasy production has been lackluster in recent weeks. Week 26 saw a return to previously strong efforts but before anyone reads too much into it, his elevated production was due mostly to an assist. Unless he becomes an assist machine of Fabregas proportions this level of production isn't sustainable.

Robbie Brady's fantasy output has been going in the right direction over the past two match weeks after some poor showings.

Brady gave a solid two-way performance in the final week of 2014 with four interceptions and four successful crosses in the 1-0 loss to Leicester City. With rumblings connecting Steve Bruce with the vacant Newcastle United position, it isn't clear what may happen to the value of any Hull City players over the second half of the season but assuming Bruce stays in place, Brady might be worth monitoring again.

Robbie Brady started and scored a brace for the Republic of Ireland against an over-matched USA side in a 4-1 route of the Americans at the Aviva Stadium.

The USA had generally played well on European soil under German manager Jurgen Klinsmann but not on this day as Robbie Brady led Ireland in a route of the Americans. Anthony Pilkington got the scoring started early in the first half only to see his opener matched by Mix Diskerud toward the end of the half. The second half was all Ireland though with Brady, James McClean and Brady again scoring for the Irish. Not a good day for what should have been a very solid American defense despite the inclusion of young goalkeeper Bill Hamid over presumed number one Brad Guzan.

Robbie Brady isn't known for his defense but that's exactly what he contributed to Hull City's draw with Liverpool.

You aren't going to see too many one blocked shot, four interception, five tackle won stat lines from Robbie Brady but he can eventually retire knowing he did it once at the Premier League level. Generally a strong Brady performance involves shots on target, successful crosses and some corners won but against the Reds he managed none of those but piled up the defending stats. Maybe a conversion to holding midfield is in order.

Robbie Brady assisted on a Tom Ince goal and then scored one of his own but it wasn't enough as Hull City let a second half lead slip away for the third match in a row.

First it was West Ham United coming back from two one goal deficits to gain a 2-2 draw with Hull City. Then it was dire Newcastle coming back from two down in the second half for a 2-2 draw this past weekend. Now Steve Bruce has to be genuinely worried as his side have let a third second half lead in a row slip away to modest opposition. This time the result was a 3-2 loss and elimination from the Capital One Cup. Not a good trend for a team that was dangerously close to the drop last season despite their FA Cup final appearance and some famous results.

Robbie Brady had a difficult first season in the Premier League due to a hernia injury and his second season is off to a rocky start after he didn't feature in Hull City's Europa Cup first leg match.

With Robert Snodgrass and Tom Ince both added over the summer, it appears that Robbie Brady's place in the squad has suffered if Europa Cup playing time is any indicator. None of the three "flair" players started the match with David Myler, Tom Huddlestone, Jake Livermore and Gedo taking those honors. In the late-going it was Snodgrass and Ince who came off the bench while Brady watched on from the sidelines. It is only one match but those hoping for a reprise of his great start last season may be disappointed in his lack of playing time.

Attacking midfielders Robby Brady and Sone Aluko face fitness tests ahead of today's FA Cup final.

This is particularly important for Steve Bruce because his two best forwards - Shane Long and Nikica Jelavic - are both cup-tied and the manager will need to be creative to find the offense to compete with Arsenal. If Brady and Aluko are healthy and can start then the task will be easier, if not, Bruce will need to be very lucky or very good in his attempts to generate a sustained attack.

The Hull City attacking midfielder has been ruled out of his team's Week 27 trip to struggling Cardiff City.

Remember when Brady was one of the early season fantasy surprises and we were all excited that he was coming back from hernia surgery early? That was mid-November and he's only played a full match once since and has been a sporadic substitute as he nurses a groin injury. Whether he is unlucky or the quick return undermined his health isn't clear but if he were an Arsenal player we'd all be saying "here we go again". A shame really but maybe he'll be cheap again going into next season.

Hull will be without Robby Brady for Week 17 against West Brom and likely beyond as he recovers from a groin injury.

Brady has been in and out of the line-up since his hernia surgery and the festive period sees him back on the "out" side of things. The Week 17 report indicates that Brady is "doubtful" for the entire holiday period. It seems likely that Robert Koren and Tom Huddlestone will pick up penalty and set piece duty respectively.

Robbie Brady is available to face Liverpool today, despite his being withdrawn at half-time against Crystal Palace last week, and manager Steve Bruce being worried about his fitness after returning from surgery.

After returning quickly and suffering a set-back, Robbie Brady returns to the Hull City line-up for Week 12 against Crystal Palace.

In what should be a strong match-up for Hull City and Brady, who takes set pieces, corners and penalties for Steve Bruce, is back as a very solid fantasy option. With McGregor, Koren and Brady all back in the line-up Hull City will more closely resemble the team that started the season so strongly and in Palace they face opposition almost certain to be relegated based on what they've shown so far. It all adds up an opportunity for fantasy managers to pick an inexpensive Brady in midfield.

Hull City winger Robbie Brady should be fit to play against Crystal Palace this weekend, after only being able to play a part against Everton since having hernia surgery.

Brady withdrew from the Ireland squad this break, and hopefully the rest has let him heal. Fantasy managers will be looking for assurances that Brady will play this weekend as Hull have a great matchup, at home to stuggling Crystal Palace.

Hull's Robbie Brady has withdrawn from the latest Ireland squad due to injury.

Brady, who has hasn't been involved in Hull's last several matches, bar one ill-timed substitute appearance, will hope to be fit for Hull's next match - at home against strugglers Crystal Palace.

Robbie Brady came back too quickly from hernia surgery and again faces doubts about his ability to play in Week 11 against Southampton.

With Southampton playing exceptional defense against all comers and Hull having scored in only two of five road matches, this isn't a great weekend to think about any of their attacking players anyway. That said, Brady's stock drops further with word that his health is still questionable after returning from his hernia surgery too soon in mid-October.
