The Argentine ace missed the FA Cup defeat to Arsenal after picking up the toe problem on international duty last week.
There were initial fears Veron would be ruled out for three weeks but X-rays have revealed there is no fracture.
Veron is now expected to be included in the squad for Saturday's Premiership trip to Bolton Wanderers and the South American was delighted to overcome his injury scare.
"Going back a couple of years, I had a similar knock on the same toe but that time I sustained a fracture," Veron told MUTV.
"This time it's only bruising which is great news."
But while Veron should be in the party for the short journey to The Reebok Stadium, Mikael Silvestre could be missing with an ankle injury.
The French full back hobbled out of the Champions League victory over Juventus and Red Devils manager Sir Alex Ferguson is awaiting confirmation of the extent of the injury.
Ferguson said: "Mikael has an ankle injury but we will assess it over the next 24 hours."
John O'Shea replaced Silvestre against Juventus and after a superb performance by the young Irishman, he could step into the breach against The Trotters if his team-mate is sidelined.
