Last Updated: 29/07/18 5:47pm
Burnley's pre-season injury jinx struck again during a 0-0 draw with Montpellier at Turf Moor on Sunday afternoon.
Robbie Brady, who was playing for only the second time after recovering from knee surgery in December, was taken off after 40 minutes of the match after pulling up and clutching the back of his left leg.
Manager Sean Dyche later insisted the substitution was precautionary, but the news comes just three days after goalkeeper Nick Pope suffered a shoulder injury during Thursday's Europa League game with Aberdeen.
Jeff Hendrick was the only survivor from the XI that started the first leg against Aberdeen with Sam Vokes, who scored from the bench in that game, also included from the start along with Ashley Barnes.
