Reading full-back Tyler Blackett is out of this weekend's opening game against Sheffield Wednesday.

The former Manchester United defender hobbled off with an injury during Sunday's friendly against Chelsea and it has been confirmed that he has a hamstring injury that could keep him out for several weeks.

Tom McIntyre is also a doubt for the game with a knee injury. The centre-half hasn't trained all week but it is hoped the injury isn't too serious, having suffered bad knee injuries in the past.
