Reid said: “The last few weeks have been really frustrating. I’ve been pulled and twisted all over the place in recent weeks in the hope of sorting out the injury.
“But then last week I had another scan and it showed up the stress fracture which means six to eight weeks of total rest followed by six to eight weeks of getting my fitness back.
“I’m totally gutted and devastated by all of this because this is the biggest injury of my career to date. But at least we now know what the problem is. Fingers crossed I can play again as soon as possible.”
