ROME (AP) - Roma will be without forwards Francesco Totti and Edin Dzeko for up to four weeks after both were injured during Saturday’s 5-1 drubbing of Carpi.

Midfielder Seydou Keita is expected to be sidelined for around two weeks after injuring his right thigh during the same match.

Roma says Dzeko has a right knee injury and will be out for “three to four weeks” while Totti and Keita will be re-evaluated in 10 days.

Totti replaced Dzeko at halftime in Saturday’s match but only lasted six minutes, getting injured while setting up Mohamed Salah’s goal.

Roma visits BATE Borisov in the Champions League on Tuesday. It then plays Palermo on Sunday before the international break.
