Mexico striker Javier Hernandez is expected to miss this month's Gold Cup after the player suffered a fractured collarbone in the first half of an international friendly against Honduras in Houston on Wednesday.
The 27-year-old Manchester United forward, who spent last season on loan at Real Madrid, collided with a Honduran defender five minutes before halftime in the 0-0 draw and was immediately substituted.
"The fracture of the right collarbone has been confirmed clinically," Mexico team doctor Gerardo Aguilar told reporters in Houston.
"He's being re-evaluated in hospital to confirm what we observed in a radiological study. (He'll be out) for three to four weeks minimum."
Hernandez has notched 40 goals in 73 appearances for his country and will be a significant loss as they bid for a seventh title at the July 7-26 Gold Cup in Canada and the United States.
Mexico start their Group C campaign against Cuba in Chicago on July 9, before matches against Guatemala and Trinidad and Tobago.
