Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers looks on before the Premier League match between Liverpool and Aston Villa at Anfield on December 15, 2012. Rodgers will miss his side's trip to Queens Park Rangers after being taken ill in London, according to the club's website.
Rodgers, along with reserve goalkeeper Brad Jones and head of performance Glen Driscoll, were all sent home by Liverpool's medical staff after picking up a bug.
"It was impossible for Brendan, Glen and Brad to attend the game," club doctor Zaf Iqbal told the Liverpool website.
"They are not fit to be at the match and any contact with the rest of the squad could cause the bug to spread to more of the playing staff."
In Rodgers' absence, assistant manager Colin Pascoe and coach Mike Marsh will oversee the Premier League game at Loftus Road.
