West Brom have eight players on the injury list - including four centre-halves - ahead of Saturday's FA Cup fourth round clash with Burnley at The Hawthorns.
Any plans Baggies boss Tony Mowbray had to rotate his squad ahead of Tuesday's home Barclays Premier League clash with holders Manchester United have been wrecked.
Mowbray was already resigned to being without striker Ishmael Miller and centre-back Neil Clement for the remainder of the campaign with their respective knee problems - but now centre-halves Jonas Olsson (knee), Abdoulaye Meite (hamstring) and Leon Barnett (hamstring) are side-lined along with Gianni Zuiverloon (knee), James Morrison (hamstring) and Luke Moore (hamstring).
The only encouraging news is that midfielder Morrison could be back for the league clash at Hull on Saturday week.
The Scottish international has started running again after suffering the setback in the defeat at Aston Villa 12 days ago.
Morrison said: "The hamstring is getting there. I've done my first bit of running and, considering the injury only happened the weekend before last, it felt good.
"The plan is to have a full week's training and the away game at Hull remains the target."
Morrison has been one of Albion's most consistent players this season and the club recently rejected a £3million bid from Bolton.
