France will miss the services of Toulouse fullback Thomas Ramos for the remainder of the Six Nations following a calf injury.
Ramos missed the opening two rounds of the tournament with a hernia related issue and now is set to be on the sidelines for another six weeks after sustaining the blow while playing for Toulouse at the weekend.
"A new blow... Rendez-vous in six weeks," posted the 25-year-old on his Instagram account.
Ramos has played 14 Tests since his international debut during the 2019 Six Nations and also was part of their World Cup squad later that year.
Meanwhile, Romain Ntamack and Virimi Vakatawa are set to be available for selection after recovering from a double jaw fracture and knee injury respectively.
France's third round Six Nations game against Scotland was postponed due to a Covid-19 outbreak and they are positioned second in the table with two wins from as many games. Fabien Galthie's men will face England next in the fourth round at Twickenham Stadium on 13th March.
