Sale Sharks flanker Tom Curry has been ruled out of England's November international series after scans revealed he dislocated his wrist.
He underwent a minor operation on Thursday and is likely to be out for up to 12 weeks.
Curry was due to be on the bench for England’s game against Argentina on Saturday. Sam Simmonds (Exeter Chiefs) has been called up to replace him.
The forward made his full England debut on the tour of Argentina last summer and has one Test cap.
