The Republic of Ireland international suffered a torn patella tendon in a collision with Leicester’s Harry Maguire and, though the Clarets have not confirmed his campaign is over, a six-month layoff is expected.
That is frustrating news for player and club, with Brady a key creative outlet and dead-ball specialist in Burnley’s rise to seventh in the Premier League table, but Dyche wants others to step forward in his absence.
Scott Arfield is the most obvious stand-in on the left flank, with full-back Charlie Taylor representing a wildcard option, and a tactical switch is also possible should Dyche wish to accommodate an extra attacker.
“It opens up a gap, it opens up an opportunity, and we’ve got a demanding group now,” said Dyche.
“I’ve mentioned many times my belief in the whole group and here’s another chance for it to shine.
“That was the aim at the start of the season, as well as getting results of course – can we make the group stronger? Build the inner demand between ourselves?
“I’m fully expecting whoever we play to keep playing their part and add to what we’re doing.”
Brady, meanwhile, has already gone under the knife, with Dyche reporting the operation as a success.
“The surgeon, who has done most of our players, was very happy with the work done,” he said.
“I spoke to (Brady) briefly and he understands, he’s been talked through the plan of attack from now until when he’s fit.
“It always amazes me the way they get lads through these operations and before you know it they’re wandering around the training ground.”
