Monday's announcement that Jack Miller will miss next weekend's Japanese MotoGP due to injury made no mention of a possible replacement.

However the Marc VDS team is indeed discussing the possibility of running a stand-in rider on Miller's vacant RC213V at Motegi.

The Belgian squad do not expect to confirm anything until the end of this week.

Miller broke his right tibia while training on a trails bike last Friday, undergoing surgery the following day.

The Australian aims to return for his home Phillip Island round, from October 20-22.
