Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert says Jores Okore won't return until next month.
Lambert is pleased with Okore's rehabilitation from knee surgery, but confirmed that he has yet to resume full contact training with the rest of the squad.
"He's doing well," said Lambert.
"He's outside running, which is good, so that's a bonus. He's probably back quicker than we thought. He's doing a bit of work with the fitness lads, twisting and turning and moving it. He's doing well."
