Stoke City defender Geoff Cameron could be in line for a return to action when the Potters travel to Wembley on Saturday to face Spurs in the Premier League.
The 32-year-old fan favourite has been out for five weeks with a concussion and is now available for selection.
“He’s been training for about a full week now, I think we have been cautious but I that’s the way you have to deal with these sorts of injuries these days.
“It’s been discussed at length recently, these concussion injuries. And it’s all about Geoff being comfortable in his own mind to be able to return, and we’ve allowed him that flexibility to do that”.
Hughes was not so upbeat on Bruno Martins Indi.
The Stoke boss confirmed that the Dutch defender could be out for up to eight weeks.
“Bruno, as we feared is likely to be out for some time, hopefully he will get back sooner than that.
“But he’s greatly damaged the groin area and obviously got stretchered off, he was in a lot of pain. But he’s started his treatment now and we will try and get him back as quickly as we can”.
The injury to Martins Indi comes as a huge blow for the Potters, as they enter a crucial period of the season with six Premier League games in the next 21 days.
