Fickou has been drafted in as cover along with flanker Pierrick Gunther, full-back/wing Benjamin Fall and lock Sebastien Vahaamahina.
Saint-Andre is considering freshening up his side after the 39-22 victory over Argentina which followed the 33-6 rout of Australia.
"They'll be with us until Tuesday and we'll take a decision on Tuesday evening," Saint-Andre said.
"I spoke with Marc Lievremont and other former coaches and there's often been a few problems with rehabilitation and freshness in this third week of matches."
Forwards: Domingo, Forestier, Kayser, Szarzewski, Debaty, Mas, Maestri, Pape, Suta, Vahaamahina, Chouly, Nyanga, Ouedraogo, Picamoles, Gunther.
Backs: Machenaud, Parra, Michalak, Trinh-Duc, Clerc, Dulin, Fofana, Fritz, Fickou, Huget, Mermoz, Fall.
