Wales number eight Taulupe Faletau will miss the November Tests next month as he continues to recover from injury.
Faletau limped off in his first game for Bath back at the start of the season in September, having suffered a suspected medial knee ligament injury.
While initially there was hope that Faletau would be fit in time for the internationals against Australia, Argentina, Japan and South Africa, BBC Sport report that Faletau is not expected to start training again until the middle of November.
Wales interim head coach Rob Howley is set to name his squad on Tuesday.
Faletau, 25, has won 61 caps for Wales since making his international debut back in 2011.
