Daly included in England squad despite knee injury

Elliot Daly has been called up to the England squad to face Argentina just a week after suffering a medial knee ligament tear.

Wasps revealed that Daly was expected to undergo two or three weeks of rehabilitation following damage done in their Premiership victory over Northampton Saints.

The versatile British and Irish Lion has been included in a squad of 33 for England's opening autumn international against the Pumas at Twickenham on Saturday.

In-form Leicester Tigers winger Jonny May is also in the squad despite suffering a hamstring injury.

Teenage fly-half Marcus Smith, who Eddie Jones called up as an "apprentice", will continue to receive treatment at Harlequins after spraining his foot during a training camp in Portugal.

The England forwards will train against Wales in Bristol on Monday before heading to Pennyhill Park to link up with the rest of the squad, while Tom Dunn, Nick Isiekwe, Zach Mercer and Sam Simmonds will follow a separate training schedule.

England squad:

Backs: Mike Brown, Elliot Daly, Jonny May, Semesa Rokoduguni, Denny Solomona, Anthony Watson, Danny Care, Owen Farrell, George Ford, Piers Francis, Jonathan Joseph,  Alex Lozowski, Henry Slade, Ben Youngs.

Forwards: Tom Curry, Charlie Ewels, Nathan Hughes, Nick Isiekwe, Maro Itoje, George Kruis, Joe Launchbury, Courtney Lawes, Zach Mercer, Chris Robshaw, Sam Simmonds, Sam Underhill, Dan Cole, Tom Dunn, Ellis Genge, Jamie George, Dylan Hartley, Mako Vunipola, Harry Williams.
