Lock and wing Jack Nowell are fitness doubts for England’s Six Nations clash with Italy.

Itoje limped out of training after damaging.

Nowell suffered a stinger by Wales to his shoulder at the 21-13 defeat.

Head coach has called right-wing wing Ollie Thorley and Charlie Ewels as pay at a 27-man squad before the meeting.

Flanker Chris Robshaw and centre Jonathan Joseph, that both returned to the fold have been published back to their own nightclubs while still prop Dan Cole is preferred to Harry .

Worcester centre Ben Te’o is in line for a return to the group, that will be named on Thursday.

Te’o has to feature this championship after picking up an accident in England’s training camp.

“I’m fully fit, shooting, and all set,” Te’o told BBC Sport.

“I’ve done lots of training. It’s going to be wonderful to be available.”

Scrumhalf Dan Robson is considered to be in line for his first Test start.

The Wasps pivot left his England debut against France, but had been a replacement against the Ireland and Wales.

Robson says if he gets the nod he won’t decide to try to induce matters.

“It’s not trying too hard. I’ve only got to go out there and do exactly what I have now been doing,” he told BBC Sport.

“My form has got me into this position, also I’ve got to back myself together with that, and have the confidence which that is good enough.

“It’s about going out there and playing my match, really appreciating it, and taking all of it in.”
