Phil Vickery will continue his recovery from a broken arm over the next two to three weeks and will miss Gloucester's Premiership game against Leeds on Saturday.
The 28 year-old broke a bone in his forearm in Gloucester's win over Bath on 19 February, and met with the Club's medical team on Monday, who revealed that facture has not fully healed.
Vickery requires at least another two to three weeks of recovery time, after which he'll be assessed on a day-to-day basis, as to his involvement in Gloucester's final Premiership games of the season (Vs Sale 15 April and Vs Saracens 30 April), and any play-off fixtures.
Commenting on www.gloucesterrugbyclub.com Vickery said: "It's frustrating, just like the entire season has been. But the arm has got to be ready for top-flight rugby.
"It's been six weeks since the Bath game, and I've just got to wait for it to heal. I want to be part of Gloucester's end of season, and play a role in this season's climax, and I'm doing everything I can to work on my fitness, and a return for Gloucester is first and foremost in my mind."
After working hard to return from a back injury in October, Vickery had a blow-out fracture around his eye area against Wasps in November. Just as he was returning to top form in the new year, he then broke his arm against Bath.
