Jack Grealish and Albert Adomah are big doubts for this weekend's clash with Sheffield Wednesday - but could be back soon.
Steve Bruce admitted the Owls clash might be too early for the pair.
But he's hopeful of seeing the key men back for our clash with QPR the following weekend.
Lewis Grabban will be assessed today after complaining of a sore groin in training this week - with Keinan Davis also set to be checked out due the ankle issue he picked up in the latter stages of our clash with Preston in midweek.
Robert Snodgrass is feeling much better this week after coming off against North End through sickness.
Bruce is very hopeful of having his star winger available this weekend at Hiillsborough.
However, one man who will definitely not be available at Sheffield Wednesday is Axel Tuanzebe who has injured his hamstring.
Boss Bruce also confirmed that Callum O'Hare, in fine form for the U23s, will be in the squad for the weekend.
