Watford midfielder Ross Jenkins is set for a spell on the sidelines after dislocating his shoulder during the 3-2 win at Coventry at the weekend.
The 18-year-old has become a fixture in the side since Brendan Rodgers took charge at Vicarage Road in November and has made 37 appearances this season.
Rodgers said: "Ross has a dislocated shoulder which is disappointing as he's a boy who has done well, is strong and worked hard."
He added: "With young players you like to be able to give them a rest.
"I haven't been able to do that with Ross but I hope he will recover quickly as he has produced some wonderful football."
