Brendan Rodgers confirmed the news in his press conference ahead of the third round FA Cup game against Watford. The injury is a big blow to the Premier League club as they look to repeat the feat they achieved in the last two seasons finishing in Europe.

Jamie will be out for a number of weeks. It's been unfortunate for him but we are looking at up to eight weeks. He will be out for a period of time. His is the higher end of his hamstring, you are looking into March for Jamie. He doesn't need an operation and that was the only good news from it.

The foxes have a limited number of options in the attack line following the injury to Vardy and Patson Daka. Kelechi Iheanacho is not available because of his national duty with the Super Eagles at the African Cup of Nations that will be hosted in Cameroon.
