Adam Idah and Onel Hernandez look set to miss a big chunk of Norwich City’s Championship run in.

The duo were absent for Saturday’s 0-0 stalemate at Stoke City with foot and ankle injuries respectively, after scans in recent days indicated they will be out for a number of weeks.

Head coach David Wagner confirmed neither require surgery, but any return date will hinge on how they respond to treatment.

Hernandez damaged his ankle in the recent home defeat to Sunderland, while Idah was forced off in the 1-1 draw at Huddersfield.

“Adam has a foot injury. He'll be out for a few weeks,” said Wagner. “How many exactly? We can't say at the minute. it doesn't look like a break. But maybe we have to have further investigations and assessments. I would say the worst scenario doesn’t look like it has happened.

"But now we have to see how everything else progresses, and how the treatment will work. Obviously there was no chance for him to be involved (at Stoke). His foot is still swollen, so we have to wait how it will look like in the next week.

“The same with Onel. It looks that Onel’s injury maybe even a little bit more serious than Adam’s. (Could he miss the rest of the season?) No, we hope he is back before the end of the season. We decided without a surgery.

"But obviously if you decide this you only know if it's the right choice 100pc when he's back on the grass, and then how he reacts. This is why I can't deliver an exact timeframe at the minute, rather than to say it's a few weeks.”

Norwich do not resume their play-off quest until Sheffield United’s scheduled visit to Carrow Road on April 1.

Hernandez was not included in Cuba’s squad for upcoming internationals over the next two weeks, and Idah will now miss the Republic of Ireland’s friendly against Latvia on Wednesday and a Euro2024 qualifier against France.

Midfielder Kieran Dowell is out until ‘the second part of April’ with knee ligament damage, while Sam Byram, Przemyslaw Placheta and Isaac Hayden are longer term absentees.

Young wide player Jonny Rowe is also set for further scans to assess a hamstring problem that has stalled his latest comeback. The teenager is yet to make a competitive appearance this season, after his first team breakthrough in the Premier League.

“We have to make a further investigation on Monday, where we make some new images,” said Wagner, speaking after the Stoke draw. “The first image looks more serious than the clinical assessment. But he will need a few weeks as well.”
