He insists this is not the time to start pondering what might have been.
"It's hard to believe it happened while we are fighting for the title," he said of his injury.
"This is the real status of my injury. I got back from practice today and it's not bothering me.
"If it all goes well, I'll be at coach's disposal next Sunday.
"This is no time for moping. I've said it before and I'll say it again - we are going to fight until the end.
"That's our collective goal and I'm fully committed to it."
