Le Plessis-Robinson - Racing 92 flyhalf Dan Carter skipped training on Wednesday as coaches rested the star Kiwi playmaker with an eye firmly set on the European Cup semi-final against Leicester on April 24.
The 34-year-old, capped 112 times for the All Blacks and Test rugby's world record points scorer, injured his right knee in a tackle in the nail-biting 19-16 quarter-final victory over defending champions Toulon on the weekend.
Carter handed over kicking duties to half-back partner Maxime Machenaud, but remained on the field until the final whistle.
The flyhalf will very likely be rested for the Top 14 clash at Toulouse on Sunday.
Several other players also missed Wednesday's training including centres Alexandre Dumoulin, Henry Chavancy and Casey Laulala, utility back Johan Goosen and prop Ben Tameifuna.
Racing skipper Dimitri Szarzewski has already been ruled out of the Euro semi-final in Nottingham with a knee injury.
