Scotland have called up Glasgow Warriors duo Peter Horne and Tim Swinson to the squad to face Canada this weekend.
Duncan Taylor (calf) and Jim Hamilton (ankle) were injured in Saturday's 24-6 win over USA in Houston and they will return home to continue their recovery with their club Saracens.
Centre Horne and lock Swinson were due to join up with the squad ahead of matches with Argentina and South Africa later in the summer, but will now have an early opportunity to impress.
Coach Vern Cotter said: "This is obviously disappointing news for both these players who were keen to impress in the short time they had on this tour.
"Everyone in the squad wishes them well and a quick recovery. It's now up to Peter and Tim to continue the hard work put in by Duncan and Jim, and take advantage of this opportunity, as we prepare for another Test match."
Scotland take on Canada at the BMO Field in Toronto this Saturday in the second of four summer Test matches.
The national team will then fly to Argentina to face the Pumas in Cordoba on June 20, followed by South Africa in Port Elizabeth on Saturday June 28.
