Wilfred Ndidi is unlikely to be fit for Leicester City’s trip to Wolves because of a reaction to his knee operation.
The midfielder had surgery on an injured meniscus in January and returned to action just 13 days later.
But Ndidi’s knee proved too sore for him to play in the 2-2 draw with Chelsea before the winter break, and he is still struggling even after a week off.
“He’s probably going to be doubtful for this game,” Rodgers said of Ndidi at his weekly press conference.
“He came back very quickly and played in the West Ham game and the Aston Villa game, but he’s had a little reaction to his operation.
“We’ll see how he is. I think he’ll be doubtful for this game, but hopefully okay for the following one [against Manchester City].”
