Scotland today drafted uncapped Glasgow prop Ed Kalman into their travelling party for Saturday's RBS 6 Nations clash with France.
Kalman, 26, will provide cover for Warriors team-mate Moray Low, who suffered a bout of gastroenteritis last night.
Low, who is also uncapped, was yesterday named on the bench for the game in Paris.
Kalman joins Glasgow team-mates Alastair Kellock and Dan Parks in travelling as back-up to the 22-man squad.
Scotland team manager Guy Richardson said: “Moray suffered from gastroenteritis last night so will not travel with the party today.
“The hope would be that he recovers in time to travel to Paris tomorrow.”
Meanwhile, Perpignan lock Nathan Hines is recovering after undergoing surgery on his knee earlier this week.
Scotland team doctor James Robson said: “A small piece of cartilage was removed and Nathan will now undergo rehabilitation under the care of our physiotherapists, which usually takes between three to six weeks.
“We will monitor him accordingly.”
On the prospect of facing France just six days after his side’s mauling by Wales, Scotland captain Mike Blair said today: “This week, our contact has to improve.
“With the Evans brothers coming in – they’re excellent players – I’m confident in what they can do. They play with a freedom that’s great to see at international level.
“With the team and squad we’ve got, if we get some ball, we’ll be a formidable side.”
