Sunderland's Yorke misses season opener with fractured cheekbone

The veteran midfielder was forced off during the club's friendly clash with Vitoria Setubal on Wednesday and it was initially thought that Yorke had suffered bruising after a collision with keeper Nikola Milojevic.

"We thought it was just a bang on the head but there could be a fracture there, around his eye," boss Roy Keane told the club's official website. "He'll be out for a number of weeks."
