The 25-year old Celtic goalkeeper is in the Three Lions squad alongside Manchester City's Joe Hart and Norwich City's John Ruddy for upcoming friendlies with Chile next Friday and Germany on November 19 and is likely to be given some game time.
Hodgson said that under-fire City keeper Hart, who was recently dropped by Manuel Pellegrini, would play one of the two fixtures meaning Forster comes into contention for the other friendly.
"He will start one of two games, yes. But I don't think he'll start both," said Hodgson.
"It's important for me to look at one of the other goalkeepers, possibly both.
"But I can say Joe will definitely start one of the games as he's our number one goalkeeper."
