Reading winger Jimmy Kebe could miss Saturday's Premier League clash against Everton through injury.
The 28-year-old Mali international missed the first four league games of the season due to a hamstring problem and is now doubtful with a tight groin.
Royals boss Brian McDermott will definitely be without goalkeeper Alex McCarthy (shoulder) as well as midfield duo Danny Guthrie (thigh) and Jem Karacan (knee).
Kevin Mirallas is out for Everton after limping out of last week's 2-1 win over Sunderland with a hamstring strain.
David Moyes has also confirmed that Darron Gibson will be sidelined for a 10th successive game as the Irishman is yet to recover from his thigh tendon problem.
Moyes has a number of other injury concerns, with Victor Anichebe (hamstring) and Tony Hibbert (calf) both having missed the clash with Sunderland.
