England will give Jonny May every chance to prove his fitness for next weekend's Six Nations clash against Scotland.

The Gloucester wing's debut in the Six Nations lasted less than 10 minutes in the dramatic defeat to France in Paris as he suffered a nasty facial injury.

The Rugby Football Union have confirmed that May has sustained a fractured nose, and he will be assessed by team medics on Monday as England consider their options for Murrayfield.

But Courtney Lawes will be available after he suffered no worse than bruising to his cheekbone at the Stade de France.

Freddie Burns has been added to the squad after impressing for England Saxons.

An RFU statement read: "Jonny May suffered a fracture to his nose against France and will see a specialist on Monday for further assessment.

"A decision on his availability for selection against Scotland will be made following that examination.

"Courtney Lawes suffered a bruised cheekbone but no structural damage and will be available for selection.

"Under the Elite Player Squad agreement England will have 33 players in camp with Freddie Burns returning to the senior squad following his two appearances for England Saxons.

"Stephen Myler, Rob Webber and Richard Wigglesworth remain with their Aviva Premiership clubs."

England squad

Forwards: Dave Attwood, Dan Cole, Dylan Hartley, Matt Kvesic, Tom Johnson. Joe Launchbury, Courtney Lawes, Joe Marler, Ben Morgan, Matt Mullan, Chris Robshaw, Ed Slater, Henry Thomas, Billy Vunipola, Mako Vunipola, Tom Wood, Tom Youngs.

Backs: Chris Ashton, Brad Barritt, Mike Brown, Freddie Burns, Luther Burrell, Danny Care, Lee Dickson, Kyle Eastmond, Owen Farrell, George Ford, Alex Goode, Jonny May, Jack Nowell, Billy Twelvetrees, Ben Youngs, Anthony Watson.
