Scott Hogan and Jack Grealish were back in training this week ahead of the Wigan game on Saturday.
Hogan has been absent for just under a month with an ankle problem sustained in the away game to Newcastle United.
Grealish suffered a nasty cut to his knee against Rotherham United a fortnight ago.
Both could well return to the squad against the Latics.
It will be a tonic for boss Steve Bruce who has been snookered over the past few weeks by a host of fitness problems.
The likes of Birkir Bjarnason, Gabby Agbonlahor and Nathan Baker are all out injured while Leandro Bacuna is continuing his lengthy suspension.
