Grant was ruled out of last weekend's 4-2 defeat at Aldershot with a shoulder problem and remains a concern for under-fire boss John Coleman.
Fellow forward Terry Gornell is also unavailable as he serves the second game of a three-match ban following his sending off in the 3-2 loss to Exeter.
Dale have shipped 13 goals in four consecutive defeats, including three before half-time in each of their last three matches and Coleman may look to reshuffle his backline.
Ryan Edwards is pushing for a start having replaces Rhys Bennett at half-time against Aldershot, while Joe Rafferty could also come into the reckoning.
Midfielder Reece Gray is continuing his rehabilitation from a serious leg injury but will not feature until the new year.
