Montpellier captain Fulgence Ouedraogo is a doubt for their back-to-back clashes with the Glasgow Warriors in the Heineken Cup.
The French international back-row suffered a rib cartilage injury during Montpellier's 30-23 victory over Biarritz on Sunday. He was forced to leave the pitch during the first-half but the club are yet to confirm how long he will be absent for.
And Ouedraogo is not the only injury worry for the side which finished runners-up in the 2010-11 Top 14 season. Thibault Privat is suffering with internal bruising on his left knee while Mickael de Marco has a bruised right knee.
The Top 14 side also face an anxious wait over their forwards coach Eric Bechu as he is set to miss three months. The club announced on Monday that Bechu is to undergo surgery and will miss twelve Top 14 games and their remaining Heineken Cup pool matches.
