Sunderland could be without one of their summer signings for an extended period of time following his latest injury setback.
It is understood that the forward has suffered medial ligament damage and could be unavailable for the Black Cats for the next six to eight weeks, which will give Jack Ross some concerns moving forward.
The striker picked up the knock during their League One trip to the Pirelli Stadium, where they lost 2-1 to Burton Albion at the weekend.
The 25-year-old had only joined the Stadium of Light outfit in the summer transfer window and has only been able to make four appearances for the side following a similar injury he had when he arrived from Bradford City.
Wyke’s latest injury will come as a huge blow to Sunderland this season as they look to win promotion back to the Championship.
Ross had signed the striker to be his main goalscoring threat, however, the former Bradford man has not had the chance to get going.
The Black Cats now just have two recognised strikers on the books, with Josh Maja and Jerome Sinclair and they will be looking towards them to help guide them as close to the summit of League One as possible in Wyke’s absence.
