Dunn, 31, missed last weekend's defeat at Aston Villa and will be on the sidelines again when Rovers head to Craven Cottage.

"David has a small tear and it will take a few days for it to settle down, ruling him out of this week's action," a club spokesman said.

Rovers will also be without defender Ryan Nelsen, who serves a one-match suspension for after being sent off at Villa Park.
