France and Racing 92 winger Teddy Thomas is reportedly set to miss the rest of the season due to his hamstring injury.

The 22-year-old suffered a recurrence of his injury playing in the Top 14 for Racing against Grenoble on February 20.

According to Midi Olympique, Thomas, who won his fifth cap for France in the win over Ireland last month, will not have another operation on his hamstring, with the Racing medical staff opting to let him recover from the injury through resting it instead.

He is therefore expected to miss out on the rest of the campaign.

Midi Olympique also report that Racing could move to bring in Albert Vulivuli as a medical joker to cover for the absence of Thomas, with Vulivuli's current stint in a similar role at Clermont for Benson Stanley coming to an end.

The Fijian international spent three years with Racing from 2010 to 2013 and has since turned out for La Rochelle and Montpellier prior to joining Clermont.
