Glasgow Warriors back-row Tyrone Holmes is set to be sidelined for four months due to a foot injury.
Holmes sustained the injury while playing for Glasgow Warriors ‘A’ against Edinburgh ‘A’ a fortnight ago.
The 29-year-old flanker has undergone surgery at BMI Ross Hall Hospital in Glasgow.
“We all feel for Tyrone (Holmes), who has had some bad luck with injuries during the past two seasons," said Glasgow Warriors head coach Gregor Townsend.
“He had started the season in good form and had been working hard in training.
"We’re disappointed to lose him for the next few months, however we wish him all the best with his rehab.”
Meanwhile, Glasgow full-backs Peter Murchie and Glenn Bryce and back-row Jason Hill are all progressing well.
Murchie is back doing modified training as he recovers from an elbow injury, while Bryce and Hill have started running following ankle injuries.
Hooker Fraser Brown (foot) has been running on an anti-gravity treadmill at BMI Ross Hall Hospital while he continues his rehab and second-row Kieran Low (concussion) is back doing non-contact training and is progressing through the graduated return to play protocol.
Centre Richie Vernon is currently undergoing rehab for a shoulder knock picked up in the game against Northampton.
