Harper was forced to leave Saturday's match against Arsenal in the 43rd minute due to a bicep injury, reports the Hull Daily Mail. Before exiting, Harper had made four saves and allowed one goal. If the injury turns out to be a torn muscle, he is expected to miss significant time.

Harper was filling in for injured goalkeeper, Allan McGregor. If McGregor is unable to return for Hull City's next match, Eldin Jakupovic would get the start for the Tigers.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Harper started in place of the injured Allan McGregor (shoulder) and made one save during Hull City's 2-0 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Harper nabs a clean sheet in his first Premier League start of the season, though he figures to have a much tougher time in his next matches, as Hull City travel to face Arsenal and Liverpool after the international break. McGregor is expected to be out for at least 4-to-6 weeks, so while Harper certainly makes for a cheaper play in most salary-cap formats, his upside is a bit limited in the short term given the opposition on the horizon.

Harper was only able to make one save while allowing two goals Saturday during Hull City's 2-2 draw with Fulham.

Harper made two saves Saturday against Stoke City, but allowed a goal in the 62nd minute as Hull City lost 1-0.

Harper is expected to be the Hull City starting goalkeeper for the remainder of the season as Allan McGregor is out with an injury. Saturday was a promising start on the road for Harper, but with matches against Swansea City, Manchester United, and Arsenal coming up, Harper could struggle to produce fantasy value in the Tigers' next three matches.
