Sheffield United manager Neil Warnock hopes to be able to call on the services of Republic of Ireland international goalkeeper Paddy Kenny later this month.
Kenny had to be substituted after picking up a groin injury in Saturday's 1-0 victory against Arsenal but the problem is not as serious as was initially feared.
"Paddy's had his scan and there's good news," Warnock told the Blades' official website.
"There's no tear - it's a strain - and he's going to be out for two to three weeks.
"We may have to bring another goalkeeper in, temporarily."
