The injury-plagued Kante missed out entirely in Friday's draw with Austria, and it has since been announced that the 31-year-old has picked up a knee problem.
Kante leaves the camp having made just one Nations League appearance this month - playing the full 90 of the opening loss to Denmark before sitting out the Austria and Croatia draws.
Meanwhile, centre-back Hernandez has travelled back home for the birth of his child, and the 26-year-old is also unavailable for the fourth League A Group 1 fixture.
The defending world and Nations League champions sit rock bottom of their section having taken just two points from nine on offer so far. body check tags ::
