Blackburn manager Mark Hughes expects David Dunn to be fit to face Bayer Leverkusen in the UEFA Cup on Wednesday.
There were initial fears the former Birmingham midfielder would miss the game after limping off after suffering a dead leg during the 1-0 defeat by Everton on Saturday.
However the problem is not as bad as was suspected and he will travel with the Blackburn party to Germany tomorrow.
Dunn's presence would be a boost for Blackburn given that midfielder Robbie Savage and Steven Reid are suffering from long-term injuries.
Hughes said: 'David got a nasty bang on the hip and that immobilised him straight away.
'He could not continue in the game, which was disappointing for him and us. Although it is sore on the impact area we don't anticipate the problem will cause him to miss the game.'
Stephen Warnock can participate in the first-leg match even though he played for Liverpool in the Champions League.
Stephane Henchoz could also make his bow in the competition but new signings Bruno Berner and Christopher Samba are ineligible.
Morten Gamst Pedersen (hamstring) and Matt Derbyshire (thigh) are both remaining at home to continue their recovery from injury.
