West Bromwich Albion manager Roberto Di Matteo expects Luke Moore to be sidelined with a knee injury for another couple of weeks.
Moore strained medial ligaments during last weekend's surprise 1-0 defeat at home by Crystal Palace and missed the 3-1 loss at Barnsley on Tuesday.
The striker has also been ruled out of Saturday's trip to Preston North End, live on Sky Sports 1, and will now return to action after the international break.
"Luke has a strain on his medial ligament," said Di Matteo.
"He won't be available for Saturday, but hopefully after the two-week break."
Meanwhile, Youssouf Mulumbu is a doubt for Saturday's game at Deepdale after being replaced at half-time against Barnsley due to a knock.
Di Matteo added: "As for Youssouf, he got a knock on his ankle and was in pain, so we changed him."
