Palermo's Miccoli suffers leg injury

Palermo striker Fabrizio Miccoli suffered a thigh injury Sunday against Fiorentina and could face a spell on the sideline, the Italian club announced Tuesday.

Miccoli, 32, was taken off on a stretcher late in the first half of a 2-0 win over Fiorentina and then diagnosed with the thigh injury. He will be evaluated later in the week to determine if he will miss this week's game against Parma.

The Palermo captain has played in 10 Serie A matches this season, and has four goals and three assists.
