Andrew Sheridan is set to miss England’s Grand Slam bid after suffering a torn calf.
The Sale loosehead prop was forced off in the first half of England’s 17-9 victory over France on Saturday.
England manager Martin Johnson said Sheridan faced between two and four weeks out, so he would “probably” miss the games against Scotland and Ireland.
Sheridan, who will definitely miss the Scotland game, has suffered a grade two tear of the calf and has returned to Sale today from England’s training camp in Oxford.
Fly-half Toby Flood has undergone a scan on his injured Achilles and England remain confident he will be fit to face Scotland.
