The 23-year old has had a frustrating beginning to the campaign, first with an ankle problem, and now with a knee but he feels like things are going well for a quick comeback.
"I'm in to the third week now, doing more and more work in the gym," he said. "In the last couple of weeks I've been mainly doing weights and getting more strength in the leg. Hopefully it won't be too long until I can start running but it depends on how sturdy and stable it is.
"It's frustrating after I was out for so long over the summer. It's the worst feeling in the world being injured, it's not nice watching the lads play when you're out.
"To know you're out for a few weeks is heartbreaking but I've got to get it right before I can come back. The physios are brilliant with me and they know I'm eager to get back out as soon as possible."
