Kye Rowles netted his first goal for Hearts but picked up an injury in a 3-2 victory over St Johnstone in the Scottish Premiership on Sunday.
After St Johnstone went ahead early, Rowles powered in a 25th-minute header from a corner, but hurt his right foot in the process and needed treatment.
Rowles tried to play on but was replaced in the 35th minute. Nathaniel Atkinson also started but was replaced in the 62nd minute with an injury. Cam Devlin, who impressed in midweek with an 8/10 display in the Europa League, played a full game.
Hearts boss Robbie Neilson said: “With Kye it was just his foot, his metatarsal, so we’ll have a look. That’ll be scanned tonight or tomorrow.
“Atkinson was his groin. It’s very early days but we’re hoping they’re just light injuries and we’ll get them back but we can’t tell at the moment.”
Elsewhere in Scotland, Keanu Baccus scored the winner for St Mirren in a 1-0 triumph over Martin Boyle‘s Hibernian as BBC named Ryan Strain their Man of the Match.
Baccus ghosted into the box and side-footed home from fellow Aussie Strain’s bouncing cross in the sixth minute.
Baccus and Strain both put in full shifts, along with Martin Boyle while Lewis Miller was an 87th-minute substitute for Hibs.
Miller had a moment to forget when Hibs wanted to bring him on but he wasn’t ready. Hibs boss Lee Johnson explained: “Surely as a player you are looking at a clock knowing you might go on. The exact situation was a wide free-kick outside the box. We wanted to get Lewis Miller and he’s not got his shinpads on, boots tied up or shirt on. He is 6ft2 and a powerhouse. I’m not talking bad of him, it’s just the naivety.”

Teesside Live rated McGree 7/10 and wrote: “Really lively throughout, dropping deeper to initiate a press and then looking to help break with plenty of threatening runs. Tireless energy for his side.”
