The tricky winger broke a major bone in his right foot on the opening day of the Premiership season at Portsmouth and it has yet to heal properly.
Head Coach Martin reported:
Wayne is still out with his foot injury and it could take another couple of months.
"It's a difficult injury - players have been out for a season with the same problem. It depends on how quickly it heals."
