Fabregas out for three weeks

LONDON - Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas will be out for up to three weeks with a hamstring injury, the English Premier League club said on Tuesday.

The Spanish midfielder, who has been in good form in recent weeks, picked up the injury shortly after scoring in Saturday's 1-1 draw at Sunderland and was quickly substituted.
