Ross County will be without Stuart Kettlewell for their Scottish Premier League game against Inverness at Victoria Park on Saturday.
The midfielder was forced out of the Boxing Day win over Hibernian with a hamstring problem which will keep him out until late January at the earliest.
Boss Derek Adams has no other fresh injuries ahead of the Highland derby.
Inverness will assess the fitness of defender Josh Meekings who has missed the last two games with a groin injury.
Nick Ross made his comeback from a shoulder injury during Saturday's goalless draw against St Johnstone, leaving Simon King (ankle) and Chris Hogg (knee) the only definite absentees.
