Northampton prop Brian Mujati is set for a spell on the sidelines after suffering a calf injury.
The former Springbok international limped off in the first half of Northampton's 17-16 loss to Saracens on Sunday and the Saints director of rugby Jim Mallinder admitted he was unsure when the 28-year-old would be back in action.
"Not too sure," Mallinder said when asked about the severity of Mujati's injury. "He injured his calf so I'm not exactly sure what the extent of the damage is. Hopefully it's not too bad."
Mujati is set to leave Northampton in the close-season to sign for Racing Metro in Paris.
