We will wait and see what the scan shows and what the specialist opinion on that is but we don have a game this weekend so we can be quite patient around that.”There is no rush. The longer you wait, the better clarity you get from a scan perspective so we are quite optimistic. Our medics certainly think it is not serious. It is not the same pec he injured a couple of seasons ago, which is really positive. It should be a minor issue, hopefully.”Read MoreLeicester Tigers 16 15 Wasps reaction: O praises his side resolve and characterO added that the player himself certainly felt that it would not be a long term issue. “He is really positive,” O said. “He knows how serious the other one was and how that felt at the time and his thinking is that it is nothing as severe as that.”Tigers are also hopeful that flank forwards Brendon O and Mike Williams will be in the mix for the game against Bath at Twickenham on Saturday week.Williams damaged a hamstring in the win over Worcester Warriors earlier this month, while O picked up a rib injury late in the same game. Both had been in outstanding form in the Tigers back row before they were injured and having either one, or both, back in the squad to face Bath would be a major plus for the Leicester forward pack.allMost ReadMost RecentLeicester City FCNew Leicester City training ground drone footage shows 100m complex taking shapeWork has continued at the 185 acre site in Seagrave during the pandemic, with the Leicester City squad scheduled to move into the new facility ahead of next season
