Blackburn midfielder David Dunn has been ruled out of Saturday's trip to Fulham because of a hip muscle tear.
The 31-year-old missed last weekend's defeat at Aston Villa and will be on the sidelines again when Rovers head to Craven Cottage.
"David has a small tear and it will take a few days for it to settle down, ruling him out of this week's action," said a club spokesman.
Rovers will also be without defender Ryan Nelsen, who serves a one-match suspension for after being sent off at Villa Park.
