Scotland skipper Greig Laidlaw's participation in the remainder of the Six Nations tournament has come under doubt following an ankle injury he sustained during the encounter against France on Sunday.

The 31-year-old was replaced by Ali Price in the 24th minute of the game which Vern Cotter's men went on to lose 22-16 at Stade de France.

Laidlaw has returned to his Aviva Premiership club Gloucester Rugby for further assessment of his injury while flanker John Barclay will undergo return to play protocols after suffering a head knock in the 35th minute of the game.

Meanwhile, hooker Fraser Brown, who came off the field for a Health Impact Assessment (HIA), did not return back to action while centre Alex Dunbar, passed his HIA during the match but he later developed symptoms of concussion and both the players will have to undergo return to play protocol.

Meanwhile, Josh Strauss, who suffered a rib injury during the game will be further assessed to know the extent of the damage.

After a mixed start to the tournament with a victory and a defeat apiece, Scotland will take on Wales next on 25th February.
