Matt Healy will be unavailable for selection for Connacht's upcoming clash with Zebre this weekend after suffering a thigh injury.

Healy sustained a minor thigh strain in training last week and will be unavailable for selection. He is, however, expected to be available for this month’s game with Glasgow Warriors.

Pat Lam's side will welcome back Darragh Leader and Eoin Griffin from hand and chest injuries respectively. 

Ivan Soroka (knee) and Josh Rowland (knee) will both reintegrate into Connacht training, with Rowland expected to be fit for their clash with Glasgow next week. Their trip to Glasgow will come too soon for Soroka who is ruled out with until later in the month.

Nepia Fox Matamua will see a surgeon to assess a knee injury sustained against Treviso. Jake Heenan is also out of this week's clash and will be monitored after suffering an ankle injury.

Marnitz Boshoff returns to training after a shoulder injury and is likely to feature against Glasgow.

There was some bad news for Cian Kelleher. After injuring his hamstring last week in training, he will not return to action until later in the season.
