Gray turned his left ankle he attempted to block a cross from Adama Traore in injury time and after several minutes of treatment he was stretchered off the pitch.
Claude Puel said: “In the beginning he was afraid on the pitch, because he believed, with his shinpad sticking outside his sock, that it may have been broken.”
Gray left Molineux on crutches with his foot in a protective boot.
It is said that Leicester’s medical team feel confident he has suffered a sprain rather than a break.
Gray took to Instagram to update supporters on Tuesday night, saying: “Happy we progressed into the next round! Injuries not as bad as first thought, hopefully I’ll be back in no time! Thanks for the messages”.
