Martin said: "Ledley has very slight bone bruising on his left foot.
"We are acting sensibly in giving him rest so that he can heal quickly from this minor injury.
"It is better that we take this precaution rather than having the possibility of a fracture happening and him being out for over two months.
"This way we can ensure he is back on the pitch and fully fit very soon."
Ledley King missed Saturday's clash against Liverpool with a foot problem - Martin Jol reports that it is a 'minor injury'.
