Tom Huddlestone is out of the frame for Saturday's trip to Manchester United.
Harry Redknapp reported on Friday morning that the midfielder had yet to recover from the ankle injury that kept him out of last week's draw against Everton.
Ledley King and Vedran Corluka both remain out with groin injuries.
Better news sees Jermain Defoe making good progress after his ankle injury.
"We're really pleased with how he's coming on," said Harry. "He's always positive about getting back and playing."
JD remains out though alongside long-term injured Michael Dawson, Jamie O'Hara and Jonathan Woodgate.
