British and Irish Lions wing Sean Maitland will be sidelined for approximately eight weeks due to a knee injury he sustained in Scotland’s defeat to Ireland on Sunday.
Scotland team doctor James Robson said on Wednesday afternoon: "Sean was examined by consultant orthopaedic surgeon Graham Lawson. He found that Sean has sustained some damage to the structures of his knee and ankle but, happily, does not require surgery.
"The expected recovery time for soft tissue damage of this sort is up to eight weeks.
"Sean is now beginning work on his rehabilitation in the care of the Glasgow Warriors medical team.”
