Liam Moore (illness) missed out at the weekend and Chris Gunter, Lucas Boye, Tom McIntyre and Lucas Joao remain sidelined.
Enda Stevens suffered a suspected calf strain during the 1-1 at home to Brighton and is doubtful.
Sheffield United are going along nicely in the Premier League so they can apply their full focus to their FA Cup fifth-round tie at Reading.
Chris Wilder selected a stronger side in round four than he had in the third round and if he goes with his first-choice players in Berkshire, they should make it difficult for the Sky Bet Championship side.
The Blades had the benefit of a free weekend while Reading were playing their third match in eight days. The Royals beat Barnsley 2-0 but may not be ready to play at full tilt.
Sheffield United have lost one of their last eight matches.
