England head coach Andy Robinson can include Mark Cueto in his plans for the November Tests after the Sale winger escaped any major damage to his ankle.
Robinson, due to name his 30-man squad tomorrow, faced an anxious wait after Cueto limped off only 12 minutes into the Sharks' Heineken Cup defeat to the Ospreys last Friday. But a scan revealed good news and Cueto aims to be fit for Sale's home European clash with Calvisano on Friday.
He said: "The ankle eased over the weekend and I am happy with the scan results. There is fluid around the joint, which is to be expected, but the Sale Sharks physio team are looking after me and I am aiming to be fit for the weekend."
There were also concerns over Josh Lewsey after he limped out of Wasps' win over Castres with a tight hamstring.
But the move was only precautionary and Lewsey has been assessed by the Wasps medics and given clearance to return to training this week.
Lewsey expects to be in action this weekend, when Wasps play Perpignan in the south of France.
Fears that the French side's prop Perry Freshwater broke his leg against Treviso were also eased after a scan reportedly showed he had suffered only heavy bruising.
Freshwater, who was born in New Zealand, is in line to make his full England Test debut in the autumn campaign opener against the All Blacks on November 5.
Robinson is preparing to lead his side into a huge autumn and the start of a World Cup year. A week after locking horns with the TriNations champions, England face Argentina and then South Africa twice.
