France coach Didier Deschamps fears Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is facing an extended period out injured.
Spurs have confirmed Lloris will be sidelined for the remainder of 2019 after dislocating his elbow in defeat at Brighton.
And Deschamps says: "We are talking about weeks and even months, and he will not be back on the field in 2019, that's as good as safe.
"He has been examined, but it is difficult to say exactly how long he has been out, because I am not an expert.
"Of course, he will neither attend here nor the next national team meeting (in November) - and now we have to find out how how long it will take to recover."
