Harlequins centre Jordan Turner-Hall will be out for a month with a cheek injury.
Turner-Hall sustained the injury in Quins' 38-9 victory over Newcastle Falcons at the weekend. Quins had feared he may require surgery but, having consulted a specialist, they are confident that he will return to action within a month.
Quins have already lost Turner-Hall's regular midfield partner George Lowe to injury with Matt Hopper impressing in his absence.
