South Africa international Heini Adams, pictured in action on March 20, 2013, said Monday he will be out of action for four to six weeks due to a broken wrist.
The Bordeaux-Begles scrum-half was injured in Saturday's 21-20 win over Top 14 champions Castres.
Adams had tests on his wrist on Sunday and was wearing a brace on Monday, when he explained he would need at least a month on the sidelines while the brace will remain for a week.
Meanwhile, New Zealander Matthew Clarkin will miss Wednesday's visit of Montpellier and Sunday's trip to Grenoble but should be fit to face Oyonnax on September 14, his coach Rafael Ibanez said.
The No.8 came off against Castres with a broken nose but does not need an operation.
