Wolves 1-0 victory over Ipswich Town at Molineux on Saturday was tainted by first half loss of in-form centre back Jody Craddock.
Jody suffered suspected knee ligament damage and it's still not known how long it may keep him on the sidelines for.
With Gabor Gyepes already out, and Lee Naylor suffering from a persistent patella problem Hoddle may have no choice but to seek emergency loan signings to bolster his defensive options.
Jody joins Paul Ince, Mark Kennedy, Gabor, George Ndah. Matt Murray Colin Cameron and Jackie McNamara in the crowded treatment room that has not been empty at any point this season.
