Leicester Tigers head coach Heyneke Meyer has increasing injury problems ahead of the trip to Sixways to take on Worcester Warriors.
Harry Ellis, Dan Hipkiss and Richard Blaze are all likely to miss the game after picking up knocks on Saturday.
Meyer told BBC Radio Leicester: "We're not where we want to be yet and all the injury problems don't help."
Club captain Martin Corry will return after missing the opening two games with a groin injury.
Meyer added: "It's good to have him back for this away game which will be mentally tough."
The Tigers already have Lewis Moody, Martin Castrogiovanni, Louis Deacon, Derick Hougaard and Alesana Tuilagi on the long-term injury list and Seru Rabeni suspended.
But the South African says the situation will give opportunities to others in the squad: "They've been great coming in and it's a learning experience for the youngsters which will give us a better squad going forward."
