Lovren (groin) was subbed onto the pitch at half during the 1-0 victory over Sunderland on Saturday.

Lovren gave the Reds an extra defender to sit on the 1-0 lead they had for almost the entire match. He had been dealing with a groin injury but that seems to be behind him after Saturday's 45-minute outing.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lovren (groin) is available off the bench for Liverpool's Premier League match against Sunderland on Saturday.

Lovren returns from his groin injury, but manager Brendan Rodgers will go with a three-man back line of Emre Can, Martin Skrtel and Mamadou Sakho instead of bringing Lovren back into the starting XI.

Lovren (groin) has returned to first-team training, and he will be available for Saturday's match against Sunderland, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Lovren, who was held out of Monday's FA Cup match against AFC Wimbledon, could be thrown right back into the starting XI, as Kolo Toure is away at the Africa Cup of Nations, while Jon Flanagan (knee) and Glen Johnson (groin) are out.

Lovren continues to be sidelined with a groin injury despite having returned to training, the Echo reports.

Lovren has been sidelined since Dec. 17 with a lingering groin injury. Manager Brendan Rodgers expected the 25-year-old to be back by Monday's FA Cup match against AFC Wimbledon, although that didn't come to fruition. Considering that his timetable for return has come and gone, he'll likely have a late-fitness test ahead of Saturday's match against Sunderland to determine his availability.

Lovren was unable to return from his groin injury to play Sunday against Arsenal.

Lovren was considered a game-time decision, and he'll now have to wait for Boxing Day at Burnley for his next shot to play.

Lovren will have a late fitness test ahead of Sunday's Premier League match against Arsenal after picking up a groin injury during Liverpool's midweek Capital One Cup match against Bournemouth, the club's official website reports.

Lovren has fallen out of favor with manager Brendan Rodgers, as the Liverpool defense continues to leak goals, making him a fairly weak fantasy option in most formats.

Lovren overcame his abdominal injury and played the full 90 minutes of Liverpool's 3-2 win over QPR on Sunday.

Lovren was questionable for the match due to an injury picked up on international duty. Despite a high priced move to Merseyside this summer, Lovren has failed to impress and can be safely ignored in most fantasy leagues due to Liverpool's leaky defense.

Lovren, who suffered an abdomen injury while on international duty, could return Sunday against QPR. "Dejan will hopefully be fine for the weekend," manager Brendan Rodgers said Friday.

While it wasn't a guarantee that he'll play, Rodgers at least didn't rule Lovren out. If he's fit, he'll likely head right back into the starting XI next to Martin Skrtel, with Kolo Toure a potentially replacement if he suffers a setback.
