Scotland's Six Nations campaign has suffered a second major blow in three days after Josh Strauss was ruled out of the competition.
The Glasgow No 8 suffered a kidney injury against France on Sunday and the Scottish Rugby Union has confirmed he will take no further part in the tournament.
Strauss will be sent back to his club Glasgow Warriors to begin his rehabilitation.
"After completing the match, he was scanned in Paris. Both the scan, and the player, were reviewed at Spire Murrayfield Hospital back in Scotland, where the full extent of the injury was confirmed," the SRU said in a statement.
It was announced earlier this week that captain Greig Laidlaw's tournament had been ended by an ankle injury.
Scotland beat Ireland 27-22 in their first game and face Wales at Murrayfield in the third round on February 25.
