Cole (knee) is expected to return to action this Saturday against Aston Villa, reports the Daily Mail.

Cole could be out for up to two weeks after suffering a knee injury in training Thursday, the Daily Mail reports.

Cole was able to play for England in Wednesday's international friendly against Denmark, but suffered a lateral ligament issue during training the following day. As a result, he has been ruled out of Saturday's match against Tottenham, a similar fate to fellow-defender David Luiz, who continues to nurse a groin injury.

Mourinho said that Cole is in good form despite not playing regularly. England manager Roy Hodgson's first choice at the position might be Leighton Baines, however.

Cole assisted on Eden Hazard's 56th minute goal during Chelsea's 2-0 win over Hull City on Saturday.

Cole's assist was his second this season, which he coupled with another clean sheet. With Branislav Ivanovic likely out for another two weeks, Cole will likely remain in the starting XI.

Cole will not start Monday's Premier League match against Arsenal, and may not even be made available, the Daily Mail reports. Manager Jose Mourinho said that Cole will be "on the bench or at home."

Cole has recently fallen out of favor with Mourinho, who was not happy with pictures that went public of the defender partying with Arsenal players less than a week before their highly-anticipated tie. Cesar Azpilicueta will continue to start in Cole's place.

Cole (ribs) was available off the bench for Tuesday's Champions League match against FC Basel but he did not play.

Cole initially suffered his rib injury back in October and re-aggravated it while playing for England during the recent international break. It's unclear if he was not fully fit to return Tuesday or is manager Jose Mourinho was simply making a tactical decision. Either way, he should be available for Sunday's Premier League match against Southampton.
