Everton's Traore out with hamstring injury

Liverpool, England (SportsNetwork.com) - Everton striker Lacina Traore will miss several weeks with a hamstring injury, the Premier League club confirmed Tuesday.

The Ivory Coast international suffered the injury in the warm-up ahead of Saturday's defeat at Chelsea and was immediately withdrawn from the starting line-up.

Traore, who is on loan with the Toffees from Ligue 1 club Monaco, has made just one appearance for Everton, scoring against Swansea City in FA Cup action on Feb. 15.
