James Hayter is to spend around two months on the sidelines after the results of the scan on his hamstring showed a significant tear.
He was sent for scans on Thursday and the result has shown a significant tear and around six to eight weeks on the sidelines.
Hayter suffered the hamstring injury in the closing stages of Tuesday nights Carling Cup defeat to Accrington Stanley.
The striker had started the season well last weekend when he scored Rovers second goal in the 2-0 win at Preston North End.
