QPR striker Bobby Zamora is suspended for Saturday's Barclays Premier League clash with Stoke at Loftus Road.
Zamora will serve the second of his three-match ban for being sent off against Wigan.
Shaun Wright-Phillips is out after undergoing ankle surgery, while Andrew Johnson is sidelined with a knee problem.
Stoke winger Matthew Etherington remains doubtful ahead of thetrip to QPR.
Etherington missed last Sunday's defeat by Manchester United after suffering a back injury in the previous week's loss to Aston Villa.
Defender Marc Wilson (back/hamstring) is hopeful of returning while manager Tony Pulis is hopeful "one or two players with niggles" will be fit.
Stoke: Begovic, Sorensen, Cameron, Huth, Shawcross, Wilson, Wilkinson, Kightly, Shotton, Nzonzi, Whitehead, Etherington, Whelan, Adam, Jones, Walters, Crouch, Owen, Jerome, Palacios, Shea.
QPR: Cesar, Green, Onuoha, Hill, Samba, Mbia, Fabio, Traore, Granero, Diakite, Hoilett, Park, Derry, Taarabt, Jenas, Townsend, Mackie, Remy, Bothroyd.
