Leon McKenzie's torn thigh muscle is set to keep the Coventry striker out for up to six weeks.
The 30-year-old, who only recently returned to fitness following a similar injury last season, suffered the tear in training last week as the Sky Blues' prepared for their Championship clash against midlands rivals Wolves at Molineux.
"Leon McKenzie has a second-degree tear which means he will be out for four to six weeks, so that is better news because we did fear it would be a lot longer," said Coventry boss Chris Coleman.
