Craig Gilroy is expected to be included on the provisional Ulster squad on Wednesday to face Scarlets at Ravenhill on Friday night in the table topping PRO12 clash.
There had been some concerns over the Irish international’s fitness after taking a heavy knock to his knee in the latter stages of the 24-10 loss to Munster in Limerick last Saturday evening
However, on Monday Ulster medical staff were said to be “not unduly concerned” about Gilroy’s fitness but will continue to monitor him.
Coach Mark Anscombe is expected to recall a number of players who were rested or involved in Ireland training.
Ulster are nine points clear of the second-placed Scarlets in the PRO12 table in spite of the loss to Munster - their first in this season’s campaign.
The news that Gilroy’s injury is not serious will come as a relief to Anscombe, who must plan without injured winger Tommy Bowe for the foreseeable future.
Meanwhile, Leinster are expecting to see a number of internationals return to the side which will meet Edinburgh this weekend.
Andrew Conway received a dead leg when competing for a ball in the air during Saturday night’s victory over Connacht. It is anticipated that he will be fit to train during the week and available for the trip to Edinburgh.
Richardt Strauss and Shane Jennings could be joined by a number of other Ireland internationals - such as Cian Healy, Jamie Heaslip, Sean O’Brien and Jonathan Sexton. Kevin McLaughlin is also expected to be in the mix.
