Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has admitted that Jamie Vardy will miss their FA Cup clash against Brentford on Saturday and is a major doubt for Tuesday's Carabao Cup semi-final against Aston Villa.
Vardy was forced to leave the pitch in the first half of Leicester City's 4-1 victory against West Ham on Wednesday.
He suffered a gluteal muscle and the 33-year-old will need time to be fit again.
"He’s obviously not available for the weekend and he’ll be a question mark for Tuesday," said Rodgers.
"But it’s certainly not as serious as we thought.
"At the time everyone was looking at his hamstring but it’s not that.
"So we’re hopeful for Tuesday but a little bit of work to do over the next few days."
Asked if Vardy had injured his glute instead of his hamstring, Rodgers replied: "That’s exactly it, I’m certainly not medically qualified to speak on it but I know it’s something he’ll get work in with who heads up our medical team, he’ll stay with him for the weekend.
"He’s much better, I think directly after the game he was tight and sore, struggling to move. But today was much, much better. Moving around, so it will just be about timing really, for Tuesday."
