Gray was stretchered off during Saturday’s RBS 6 Nations Championship match against Wales at Murrayfield with hamstring damage.
Scotland doctor James Robson said tonight: “Richie underwent a scan at Spire Murrayfield Hospital this afternoon which confirmed the presence of a grade two tear of one of his hamstring muscles.
“The normal period of rehabilitation from injuries of this nature is in the region of eight weeks.
“We have kept his club medical team at Sale Sharks fully appraised of Richie’s situation and he will now commence his recovery with his club with a view to playing before the end of the season.”
