AC Milan's defender and France international Theo Hernandez had to withdraw from the match against Udinese earlier this weekend due to an ankle contusion suffered during the warm-up. He's in doubt to face PSG and his brother Lucas in their next Champions League matchup.

Milan has confirmed the return of certain players for the PSG reception on Tuesday, Nov. 7 at San Siro, but they have not mentioned Theo Hernandez's availability for the midweek clash.

The injury happened in Milan's warm-up minutes before kickoff in the match against Udinese on Saturday evening, leading to the French international's last-minute withdrawal with an ankle contusion as he was expected to start the game as is often the case.

Antonio Vitiello of Corriere dello Sport confirmed the injury, later echoed by football insider Gianluca Di Marzio who provided further details, quoting Milan's manager Stefano Pioli saying that he expects to have Hernandez back "in two or three days."

For now, Milan has not officially communicated the details of Hernandez's injury or the potential date for his comeback, although Milan is facing a crucial matchup against PSG and if they draw, let alone lose, they could be out of all European competitions early.

In related news, Ismael Bennacer and Pierre Kalulu will remain unavailable for the Italian side and the potential absence of Hernandez would add to Stefano Pioli's challenges when facing PSG next Wednesday.
