England have suffered another injury blow before the Six Nations with Harlequins tight-head Kyle Sinckler forced to leave their training camp.

The 24-year-old, a late withdrawal from his club's Champions Cup defeat on Sunday, arrived in Portugal on Monday with a possible hamstring strain.

"Kyle will undergo further assessment and treatment with his club this week," a statement read.

Sinckler will be replaced at the training camp by Bath's Henry Thomas.

Eddie Jones' side, who travel to Italy for their first game on Sunday, 4 February, have now got 13 players on their injury list ahead of the Six Nations.

In terms of numbers, England have been worst affected at loose-head prop, with Joe Marler suspended and the injured trio of Matt Mullan, Ellis Genge and Beno Obano unavailable for at least part of the tournament.

Forwards: Tom Curry, Charlie Ewels, Ellis Genge, Nathan Hughes, Matt Mullan, Beno Obano, Kyle Sinckler, Will Spencer, Billy Vunipola.
Backs: Elliot Daly, Piers Francis, Semesa Rokoduguni, Henry Slade. (Ben Te'o is returning to fitness with England but has not played since October)
