QPR assistant manager John Eustace says Grant Hall is making good progress despite not yet being ready to return to action.
Hall, who missed most of last season because of a persistent knee problem, had surgery in February and has been involved in training since the squad returned for pre-season.
The defender has not featured in any of Rangers’ four recent friendlies, but Eustace has insisted Hall’s comeback is on track.
“He’s doing brilliantly. He’s dipping in and out of training and his fitness levels are coming on,” Eustace said.
“We’re delighted to have him back because obviously he’s a top player at this level.
“We’re not sure when he’ll be able to play in a competitive game but he’s joining in training and is working his socks off.
“We’re not going to rush him, because he’s been out for so long. When it’s time for him to start playing in the first team we’ll be putting him in.”
