Curtis Davies has undergone a scan as Derby County await news on the injury he sustained at Ipswich Town on Friday night.
The centre-back injured his knee in a tackle late on in the second half of the 1-0 defeat but could not be substituted due to Derby having made all their changes.
Davies will miss Tuesday night's game against Exeter as a result while Derby await the scan results. And he will not be the only player missing with Tom Barkhuizen out with a hamstring injury and Jason Knight is also absent with a knee/ankle problem.

Asked about Davies, Warne said: "Curtis is struggling. Luckily it's not muscular. He's had a bang on the side of his knee and he has undergone a scan as we speak.
"He had some fluid taken off it yesterday. I am hoping he has not done anything severe. But I don't know, that's the truth. It could be nothing, just be a bang and swelling or it could be something. I will know later today. Barkhuizen tweaked his hammy and he will be missing for a period of time as well."
Derby will also be without James Collins for the Exeter fixture as he serves the last game of a three-match ban, although the striker will be available for the weekend's clash against Bristol Rovers at the weekend.
Former Aston Villa midfielder Conor Hourihane is fit and available again after coming off the bench on Friday night at Ipswich and will be hoping to push for a start.
