Adrian Kajumba of the Daily Mirror reported Tuesday Kane has been ruled out "until May and faces a desperate battle to be fully fit" for this summer's tournament in Russian Federation. There's been tons of speculation already ranging from television commentators who are hyperbolically wondering if Kane might miss the World Cup this summer to Twitter doctors hinting that because someone said "twisted ankle" instead of "ligament strain" that he could return in a couple of weeks.
The Spurs goal machine missed seven weeks from the same injury in September 2016 and a month again earlier this season, and their medical team believe this incident is similar to the former in severity.
He was injured when his right foot got trapped under Cherries keeper Asmir Begovic.
Celtics dealt blows in form of Smart, Theis injuries
Shortly after this, Shams Charania of The Vertical reported the tendon was torn, and that Smart will be seeking a second opinion. If Smart is sidelined for an extended period of time (potentially into the playoffs), it would be a big hit to the Celtics.
He left the ground on crutches and had to postpone a scan due to the amount of swelling.
Gareth Southgate is set to name his squad for this month's global friendly matches against Holland and Italy, but Kane will be absent for both ahead of this summer's showpiece.
With the World Cup just three months away, national coach Gareth Southgate will also be eager to find out how long Kane could be sidelined for.
