Leeds United duo Paul Green and David Norris are not expected to return until after the next international break in October.
Leeds boss Neil Warnock has been without Green since the opening day of the season after he suffered a knee injury in the first half against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Norris has been struggling with injury for a few weeks and he has now joined Green on the sidelines with a thigh injury.
Leeds have seven games between now and the next international break in both league and cup and Warnock is not expecting either to return before then. Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Warnock said, “I am told three weeks with Norris and another five weeks with Green. If you add a couple of weeks onto what the physio tells you, then with another international break to come in three or four weeks, Norris could be available after that.”
Warnock has been boosted by the news that Michael Brown is back in training after the midfielder was a major doubt for this weekend`s game with Cardiff City.
The Leeds boss will also welcome Rodolph Austin back to training tomorrow after the Jamaican international has been away on international duty.
Austin has played in a double header with USA in the last week and he returns on his long haul flight today.
Warnock has also added to his numbers in midfield with the signing of Michael Tonge from Stoke City today.
The 29 year old has signed on loan for three months and will go into the squad for the game at Cardiff.
