WAYNE ROONEY has reportedly injured Derby midfielder Jason Knight in training – having been filmed in a hotel room with semi-naked girls.
The Telegraph claims Knight, 20 is out for at least two months with an ankle injury.
And he will miss the start of the Championship season, leaving Derby light of yet another player.
It’s claimed Rooney and Knight went in for a 50/50 challenge.
However, it was the Irish midfielder who came out second best.
Derby have just NINE senior players – two of which are goalkeepers.
And Knight’s absence means the Rams are left in an even more dire situation.
The incident comes after SunSport exclusively revealed Rooney called the police after photos emerged of him in a hotel room with three scantily clad women.
The former Man United ace, 35, partied into the early hours with Snapchat model Tayler Ryan and her pals Elise Melvin and Brooke Morgan, all 21.
He was seen passed out in a chair as the girls cavorted in their undies at their £60-a-night room in Manchester.

One flashed her bottom next to the retired England striker — then posted it online, captioning it “Mooney Rooney”.
Another photo which went viral yesterday saw him leaning in on one blonde reveller at a nightclub.
Rooney was angry they had taken snaps of him asleep without his permission and feared he had been the victim of a “set-up”.
