Saracens boss Mark McCall revealed that Alex Goode's shoulder injury could rule him out of England's Six Nations opener.
Goode has not played for the club since December 16 and is now a doubt for the Calcutta Cup clash against Scotland at Twickenham.
The full-back impressed for England during the November Internationals and appeared set to retain the shirt despite the challenge from Ben Foden and Mike Brown, but his position is now in doubt.
"Alex has a tear in his shoulder," said Mark McCall to the Mirror.
"At the minute we are looking at a non-surgical route and there's a chance he could be fit in two or three weeks' time.
"But it all depends how his rehab goes over the next couple of weeks - and England may want him to play a game or two before they pick him."
