CLARK — San Miguel’s ti­tle de­fense in the PBA Philip­pine Cup suf­fered an­other blow as guard Ter­rence Romeo was ruled out of the bub­ble sea­son due to a shoul­der in­jury.

“He’s out for six to eight weeks. ‘Yun ang sabi ng doc­tor at PT (phys­i­cal ther­a­pist) namin. So , it’s more or­lessone and a half months” Aus­tria con­firmed in a phone call with the Bul­letin.

“For me, out na siya this con­fer­ence,” he added.

Ac­cord­ing to ini­tial di­ag­no­sis, Romeo sus­tained a dis­lo­cated right shoul­der af­ter col­lid­ing with TNT guard Ryan Reyes with 4:57 left in the sec­ond quar­ter of the Beer­men’s 88-107 loss — their sec­ond straight de­feat in the bub­ble — Fri­day night.

The 5-foot-10 guard was ac­tu­ally one of the bright spots as he tal­lied 11 points, a re­bound and an as­sist, keep­ing San Miguel within strik­ing dis­tance, 35-43 prior to the in­jury.

Aus­tria said the Beer­men’s bid for a record sixth Philip­pine Cup cham­pi­onship would only get tougher from here on.

“I think ‘yung chances nan­doon pa rin but it’s go­ing to be tough for us.”

San Miguel (1-2) will bat­tle the win­less Ter­rafirma (0-2) on Mon­day.

The Beer­men have yet to since open­ing the 45th sea­son last March 8 with a 94-78 rout of the Mag­no­lia Hot­shots Pam­bansang Manok at the Smart Araneta Coli­seum.

SMB lost 87-83 to Rain or Shine Tues­day af­ter­noon af­ter trail­ing 16-0 at the start.
