Cherries: Injured Sheringham on crutches after surgery
Howe confirmed that the striker had gone under the knife again in his bid to overcome a long-running foot problem.
The son of former England star Teddy, Sheringham has been on the sidelines since sustaining the injury at Brentford on Boxing Day.
Having joined Cherries from non-league Dartford in October last year, Sheringham has scored one goal and been restricted to seven appearances.
Howe told the Daily Echo: “Charlie has had an operation recently to remove a bit of floating bone in his ankle, so he is on crutches at the moment.
“But, hopefully, that has got to the bottom of his problems. We are still expecting Charlie to be out for a couple of months but we are hopeful he will be back in good shape after this op.
“It is a delicate part of the foot that Charlie has, unfortunately, got the injury on. Hopefully, this will see Charlie back to 100 per cent fitness.”
Meanwhile, Howe reported that midfielder Richard Hughes remained on schedule in his recovery from a hamstring injury.
The former Pompey star, who sustained the problem during Cherries’ 2-0 win over Leyton Orient last month, is building his workload.
He is expected to return to action in the next three to four weeks.
