The 21-year-old is at the start of a season-long loan with the Cottagers but ligament damage sustained in their last pre-season friendly means he will be sidelined for about six weeks.
Fulham boss Kit Symons suggested that it was an aggravation of a complaint he picked up just before he left Everton and he will have to do without the England U21 for the start of the new campaign.
"Garbs tweaked his ankle a little bit so we are not sure how bad that is but he did a similar thing at Everton the day before he came into us."

Funny how footballers' names are added to if they're already short (Bainsey) and shortened if they're long.

The arc of footballing injuries is long, but it bends toward justice.
