West Brom are confident Graham Dorrans will make a swift recovery from an ankle injury after scans revealed it was not serious.
Dorrans has been unavailable since he went over on his ankle in the last training session before the game against Birmingham.
The initial prognosis was that he would be back in matter of days but the injury has not appeared to heal as quickly as first thought.
However, manager Roy Hodgson is happy with the progress that the skilful midfielder is making but is refusing to rush him back into action with the game against Liverpool next Saturday on the horizon.
"Graham has had his scan and is continuing to make progress," Hodgson told the Birmingham Mail.
"The medical staff is pleased with him but we're not going to rush him back.
"At this stage, there's no prognosis as to when he'll be back. We'll only consider him when he is fully fit."
Meanwhile, Youssouf Mulumbu is experiencing muscular issues at present and Peter Odemwingie also revealed he was suffering from muscle injuries before he went on international duty with Nigeria.
