ROME (AP) -- Roma captain Francesco Totti will be sidelined for at least 10 days with a hamstring injury.

Totti had to be replaced after 30 minutes in Friday's 2-0 win over Napoli with a right thigh muscle problem.

A statement on Roma's website on Monday says Totti's condition will be re-evaluated in 10 days.

The 37-year-old Totti will definitely miss the Serie A matches against Udinese and Chievo.

Roma is top of the league and has matched the best start in Serie A history with its eighth consecutive win.
