Everton will welcome back Gareth Barry for Saturday's Premier League visit of Hull, who could see Robbie Brady return.
Toffees midfielder Darron Gibson has been ruled out for several months after rupturing a cruciate knee ligament on international duty.
Steven Pienaar is still a week away from full recovery from a hamstring injury and will not be considered for the visit of Hull.
Defender Antolin Alcaraz is making good progress from a hernia problem but is still at least three weeks away from joining the squad while on-loan midfielder Barry returns after being ineligible to face Manchester City before the break.
Hull's top-scorer Brady is set for a swift return to the squad having missed only one match since undergoing a hernia operation.
Brady has recovered well over the international break and Tigers manager Steve Bruce is hopeful he can play some part against Everton on Saturday.
Ahmed Elmohamady, Gedo and Maynor Figueroa all had long journeys back from international duty and will be assessed for match fitness, while Robert Koren (fractured foot) and James Chester (hamstring) are still out.
