The striker made a winning return at Cardiff City on Saturday.
Jack Collison said: "He has a massive aura around him.
"He has been doing sessions morning, noon and night. He has got himself back as quick as he can.
"I am sure if he gets on the pitch or plays any part on Saturday, with our home fans, it is going to be a massive boost around the club. What a great game for him to come into, Newcastle at Upton Park. It would be fantastic if he popped up with a goal."
