Springbok and Leicester wing JP Pietersen has been ruled out until February with a pectoral injury.
Pietersen underwent surgery recently and will be out of action for six to eight weeks. He joins fellow Tigers backs Matt Toomua, Mathew Tait, Matt Smith and Telusa Veainu on the sideline.
The 30-year-old wing has made seven appearances for Leicester since making the move from the Sharks. He scored on his debut against Gloucester.
