Rotherham manager Steve Evans has a decision to make in defence as his side's injury crisis shows no sign of abating ahead of the visit of Wycombe.
Centre-half Craig Morgan has been ruled out for up to six weeks after breaking a bone in his shin during Saturday's 4-2 win over Cheltenham, a game he played in only after passing a fitness test on an ankle injury.
Evans will try and bring in a loan signing before kick-off, but is also considering recalling Johnny Mullins from his loan spell at Oxford.
If neither of those happen, Mark Bradley or Jason Taylor are options in central defence.
Elsewhere, there is no further good news to be found on the Millers' lengthy injury list, with Kari Arnason, Lionel Ainsworth (both shoulder), Kieran Agard (thigh), Dale Tonge (ankle/knee), David Noble (ankle), Mitchell Rose (leg) and Scott Shearer (knee) all out.
Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth is expected to shuffle his pack as his side prepares for their second away trip in four days after losing 3-1 at Northampton on Saturday.
Four of Wycombe's injured players are expected to return to training this week but will not be in contention for the game at The New York Stadium. Gary Doherty (back), Matthew Spring (calf), Jo Kuffour (ankle) and Anthony Stewart (thigh) are all set to step up their comebacks after injury.
Striker Richard Logan left the club by mutual consent on Sunday having made just eight appearances since signing for the club in the summer, while injured duo Matt Bloomfield and Grant Basey continue their rehabilitation and are yet to return to training.
Wycombe are currently bottom of League Two and have scored just 15 goals this season.
