CELTIC boss Neil Lennon fears Kelvin Wilson could be out for up to six weeks with an Achilles injury.
The Hoops defender picked up the injury in the 2-0 Scottish Communities Cup third-round win over Ross County on Wednesday night.
Ahead of the home Clydesdale Bank Premier League clash with Inverness tomorrow, Lennon, who has defender Charlie Mulgrew suspended, said: "Kelvin Wilson will be out, he is having a scan today.
"We don't know how long he is going to be out for until we get the results of the scan but it looks like he has a slight tear in the Achilles.
"It depends on the significance of the tear, we are hoping that it will be at best two to three weeks, it could be four to six weeks but we won't know the extent of it until the scan comes through.
"Kris Commons is also definitely out and it is touch and go whether Scott Brown will make the Hearts game next week.
"Georgios Samaras, Mark Wilson and Paddy McCourt are back in contention."
