Ipswich have confirmed that full-back Mark Kennedy will be out for three weeks with a hamstring injury.
The former Liverpool and Cardiff man sustained the injury during Saturday's home defeat to Coventry and will miss the trip to Watford on Tuesday night.
Manager Roy Keane told the club's official website: "It is a blow for us and a blow for him. He will have a scan later but he has damaged his hamstring and will be out for two or three weeks."
He added: "It's not the same hamstring as he did on the opening day, it's the other leg. We will miss him as he is an experienced player."
