Alessandro Florenzi, Javier Pastore, Davide Santon and Diego Perotti are all out of Roma’s trip to Sampdoria on Saturday, but Stephan El Shaarawy is back.
The quartet join Ante Coric on the treatment table, but El Shaarawy has recovered from the calf injury he picked up during the international break with Italy.
Sky Sport Italia has since reported Santon faces a month out with a flexor problem in his right thigh but that Perotti only needs a week to shake off his hamstring setback.
Defender Kostas Manolas, meanwhile, returns after missing the 2-2 draw with Fiorentina through suspension.
Roma squad to face Samp: Olsen, Fuzato, Mirante; Manolas, Marcano, Juan Jesus, Fazio, Kolarov, Karsdorp; Cristante, Zaniolo, Pellegrini, De Rossi, Riccardi, Nzonzi; Dzeko, El Shaarawy, Cengiz, Schick, Kluivert
