Norwich have no fresh injury worries against bottom-of-the-table Rovers.
Captain Grant Holt is pressing for a recall after coming off the bench to net an equaliser at Liverpool last weekend.
Centre-back Zak Whitbread continues his recovery from a hamstring injury. Striker James Vaughan, defenders Elliott Ward and Daniel Ayala (all knee) are long-terms absentees.
Scott Dann is available after recovering from a calf injury and Steven Nzonzi returns from suspension for the visitors.
Vince Grella (hip), Ryan Nelsen (knee), Michel Salgado (hamstring), and David Dunn (calf) remain out of action.
Steve Kean's struggling side were beaten 2-1 by Tottenham at Ewood Park last weekend and are bottom of the Premier League with just five points from nine fixtures.
