ABU DHABI (Reuters) - Thomas Levet has suffered another freak injury that will sideline him for up to six weeks, the Frenchman said Tuesday.

The accident-prone former Ryder Cup player broke his ribs after slipping on a staircase leading to a tee during last week's Volvo Champions event and he will miss the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship starting Thursday.

Levet had to pull out of last year's British Open after breaking his leg jumping into a water hazard to celebrate winning the French Open.

He managed to complete his third round in 82 last week in South Africa before shooting a closing 76 to finish joint last and it was not until Tuesday when he underwent an X-ray that he knew the extent of his latest injury.

"Flip, flop, splash, plouch in the bush . fell on stairs on 11th hole last week," Levet wrote on Twitter.

"Will have to miss 3 to 6 weeks . holidays are on the way, "I couldn't carry more than 160m off the tee and +3 Sunday in those conditions was a miracle."

Levet will be replaced in the Abu Dhabi field by England's Sam Little.
