The 25-year-old, who recently spent two months on the sidelines with a
groin problem, was forced off in the eighth minute of Leicester's 16-12
loss to Saracens in the English Premiership on Sunday.
His place in Eddie Jones's England squad has been taken by Bath wing Semesa Rokoduguni.
"Manu Tuilagi (Leicester Tigers) will not attend England's training
camp in Brighton because of an injury sustained during Leicester Tigers'
defeat to Saracens," the RFU said in a statement released late on
"Semesa Rokoduguni (Bath Rugby) has been called in to join up with the 33-man squad."
Leicester director of rugby Richard Cockerill said Tuilagi would be assessed on Monday.
"Normally it's 24 hours, so we will see how it has settled down in the morning to see if there's any swelling," Cockerill said.
"It might just be a bang and a bit of swelling, it might be a couple of weeks. I'm just guessing."
