Raul Meireles will be missing for one to two weeks with an injury to his collar bone.
The Portuguese midfielder left the field during the first half of our 3-1 win over Exeter on Wednesday.
The prognosis comes as welcome news as it was initially feared Meireles would be absent for several weeks.
Kenny Dalglish told Liverpoolfc.tv: "It's his collar bone that is damaged, but it's only a week or two. We've been quite fortunate with that. A week or two will be the maximum."
