Winger Nick Cummins should be fit to face the British and Irish Lions if selected despite suffering another knee injury.

The Western Force man was forced to withdraw from his side's clash with the Highlanders at the eleventh hour after receiving a blow to his knee earlier in the week. The injury comes after he missed seven weeks of the season due to a problem with his knee.

However, Force coach Michael Foley is confident the injury is not one that will keep him sidelined for any length of the time.

"If we had another two days to prepare for the Highlanders game, I think he would have played," Foley told AAP. "He'll be fine."
