Scarlets boss Simon Easterby cooled fears of a serious injury layoff for Gareth Davies after the scrum-half was stretchered off during Sunday's win over Connacht.
Livewire Davies was substituted 55 minutes into the 32-20 victory with a leg injury, but ex-Ireland international Easterby was quick to ease talk of a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
"He has a dead leg, which hopefully won't keep him out for too long," Easterby told WalesOnline.
"It was a nasty one and the initial reaction was to make sure we get him off.
"Yes, the early consideration was that it might have been a break, but in his words, it was 'a mental dead leg'."
Meanwhile, the head coach admitted Sunday's win carried great significance for his side's bid to qualify for the top-tier European competition next season.
"This win was massive for us," added Easterby.
"The great thing about this competition is that if top six is what we have got to get to, it makes these games all the more interesting.
"We have missed out on the top four because of our early-season form and losing games we should have won, but the most important thing is that we finish strongly with three home games and the Blues at the Millennium Stadium to come.
"We have got to get as many points as we can and finish as high as we can and at the moment, qualification for Europe is in our own hands."
