Man Utd defender Ferdinand out for six weeks

Rio Ferdinand won't see action for Manchester United for another six weeks.

The Sun says Ferdinand is out for six weeks after finally admitting defeat with a back injury.

The Manchester United centre-back will miss Sunday's big Premier League clash at Chelsea and team-mate Wes Brown revealed Ferdinand has been playing through the problem for months.

Brown said: "He's been getting a lot of pain for a long time so he's sorting it out now."
