Geordan Murphy: Bruised his knee against Saracens

Leicester have suffered a double injury setback with news captain Geordan Murphy and Miles Benjamin have been sidelined.

Murphy is set to be out of action for three to four weeks after he bruised his knee in the 9-9 draw against Saracens at Wembley.

However the news for Benjamin is not as encouraging with the England Saxons international likely to be out of action for the rest of the year.

Benjamin, a summer signing from Worcester, suffered a spinal injury in an A League game against Northampton - with the winger facing up to four months out.
