Danny Simpson has been included in the QPR squad to face Middlesbrough and is likely to be on the substitutes’ bench at the Riverside Stadium.
And manager Harry Redknapp confirmed on Friday that Simpson had been given the all-clear following two months on the sidelines with a back injury.
The news is a boost for Rangers as Simpson had been ever-present for them prior to his injury. He could feature in Tuesday’s game against Wigan.
“He was excellent and played every minute of every game before he got injured, so him being back is good for us,” said Redknapp.
He trained on Friday and has also been given the green light to return, but Jermaine Jenas is unavailable and Karl Henry has gone down with a virus.
Rangers will be without Richard Dunne, who is suspended after being sent off against Wednesday.
