Doncaster hope Paul Quinn will be fit to line up against Carlisle.
Quinn is nursing a knock following the 2-1 win at Bournemouth on Saturday and Rovers boss Dean Saunders will check on the full-back before finalising his plans for Tuesday night.
Captain Rob Jones overcame the calf and ankle problems that forced him off at half-time in the 3-0 defeat at MK Dons to play the full 90 minutes against the Cherries.
Meanwhile, fellow centre-half Jamie McCombe has recovered from a fractured bone in his back and resumed training but he is not yet ready to be considered for first-team selection.
Winger Kyle Bennett will also miss out again as he recovers from a knee injury.
With snow forecast for Monday night, Doncaster will conduct a pitch inspection at midday on Tuesday to determine whether the game will go ahead.
Carlisle's new signing Mathieu Manset could be included in their squad for the game if the club receives international clearance in time.
But the 23-year-old Frenchman, recently with Swiss club Sion following his release in the summer from Reading, is only 80 per cent fit according to boss Greg Abbott.
Teenage striker Mark Beck is expected to lead the line in the absence of the suspended Lee Miller after scoring his sixth goal of the season in Saturday's 2-0 home win over Brentford.
Miller will sit out the last game of his three-match ban following his recent dismissal against Notts County.
Matty Robson (groin) returned from a four-match injury lay-off against Brentford and is likely to continue and Abbott will be boosted by the return to contention of midfielder Liam Noble following illness.
Abbott has no other new injury or suspension problems.
