"We're both comfortable with him playing more. He's a player we'd like to start but (I'm not sure)," said Petke. "Everything points to him being ready to go."
Petke also said that Fabian Espindola could be back from a two-match absence due to a hamstring problem whilst Peguy Luyindula's starting position is in question after injuring himself at Toyota Park.
"Espindola is doing very well. He had a really good workout today, and all things are pointing to him being available," Petke added.
"He's (Luyindula) going to be a decision in next couple days."
