England look set to be without second-row George Kruis for the autumn Tests with Saracens announcing the lock is out of action for a “number of weeks”.
Kruis, who started all three Tests for England in Australia, has undergone surgery on his ankle and now faces a spell on the sidelines.
Mark McCall, Saracens director of rugby, said: “After consultation with George and England we are in all in agreement that it’s in the best interest of the player to undergo this minor procedure now with the majority of the season still ahead of us.
“George is on the road to recovery and we look forward to his return to action sooner rather than later.”
Eddie Jones will now look to other options to fill the void left by George Kruis with Courtney Lawes and Joe Launchbury both options to partner Maro Itoje in England’s second-row.
