Lee Wallace is facing another spell on the sidelines after suffering a groin injury during QPR’s loss at Millwall.
The veteran Scot, whose three-year stint in west London has been punctuated by a variety of injuries, went off after just 20 minutes at The Den as Rangers slipped to a second successive defeat – another blow to their automatic promotion hopes.
Sam McCallum, out since October with a hamstring injury, could be in line to return against Hull on Saturday.
The on-loan Norwich youngster played 75 minutes of an Under-23s match against Blackburn on Monday after getting through 45 minutes against Cardiff last week.
QPR boss Mark Warburton confirmed McCallum could now make his first-team return.
“Lee felt his groin. He went down the flank and felt it. We have to be cautious and careful so he came off. We’ll have to see how he is,” Warburton said.
“Sam played 75 and some of the other boys – Dom Ball, Andre Dozzell, George Thomas – got some valuable minutes in their legs and played 90 on Monday.
“The boys are ready and if it means Sam going over there we will look at that. If it means Mo (Moses Odubajo) we’ll look at that, as we will with Yoann (Barbet) or Chrissy Willock. We will look at what we can do.”
Rob Dickie will serve a two-match ban after picking up his 10th booking of the season and will be available for the trip to Blackburn a week on Saturday with Dion Sanderson set to start against Hull and Blackpool.
