England winger Anthony Watson has suffered a setback in his recovery from a calf injury and will miss Saturday’s match with Scotland in the Six Nations.
The Bath back trained on Tuesday but suffered a recurrence of the problem and sat out Wednesday’s session.
England forwards coach Matt Proudfoot confirmed Watson has been ruled out of the Calcutta Cup match at Murrayfield.
“We’ll give him the opportunity to get over it 100% before we give him the go,” Proudfoot told BBC Radio 5 Live.
“He won’t be available for the weekend.”
Lions winger Watson missed England’s 24-17 defeat by France on the opening weekend with the same injury.
Northampton full-back George Furbank made his debut in Paris with Elliot Daly switching to the wing and Jonny May completing the back three.
Uncapped Ollie Thorley of Gloucester is the other specialist wing in England’s squad.
Head coach Eddie Jones has to change his backline from the one that started against France, with another Lions back Manu Tuilagi ruled out of the trip to Edinburgh with a groin strain.
