The midfielder was sent off during Tuesday night's 4-0 defeat at Norwich and begins a three-match suspension, so Jason Demetriou is set to return to the starting line-up.
Skipper Stephen Purches is sidelined following recent surgery on a fractured cheekbone, but he hopes to resume training next week wearing a protective face mask.
Andrew Cave-Brown continues at right-back in Purches' absence.
Goalkeeper Jamie Jones took a whack to the head at Norwich but saw out the game and will be fine.
Kristian O'Leary has returned to Swansea following the end of his loan spell and fellow midfielders Adam Chambers (calf) and Sean Thornton (knee) are still on the sidelines.
