Senderos (thigh) will have a late fitness test ahead of Monday's match against QPR, the Independent reports.

Senderos has been sidelined since Oct. 9 with a lingering thigh muscle strain that he can't seem to get rid of. If he's ultimately not able to play Monday, his next opportunity to get back on the pitch will be against Tottenham on Nov. 2.

Senderos continues to deal with a thigh muscle strain and will have a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's match against Everton, the Birmingham Mail reports.

Senderos sustained his strain during play for Switzerland over the international break. If he's ultimately ruled unfit for Saturday, his next opportunity to play will come against QPR on Oct. 27.

Senderos suffered a thigh injury during Switzerland's 1-0 loss to Slovenia on Thursday in Euro 2016 qualifying, and he is expected to miss Tuesday's match against San Marino, the Birmingham Mail reports.

It is unclear how long Senderos will be sidelined, though Switzerland team doctor Cuno Wetzel said "normally a player is out of action for some time with a muscle injury of this type." The hit is a tough one for Aston Villa, with Ron Vlaar continuing to suffer from a calf issue.

Senderos managed to record his second-straight clean sheet of the season by having a 0-0 draw with Newcastle on Sunday.

Many have pegged Senderos to be on the final leg of his career, but he's been a major reason why the Villains are off to such a hot start. While the odds of recording a third-straight clean sheet against Hull City on Sunday are low, the Villains will give it a solid shot regardless.

Senderos made the start for Aston Villa on Saturday against Stoke City and was able to record a clean sheet.

The 29-year-old will try to resurrect his career at Villa Park since he was awarded a spot in the starting XI. While the match against Stoke saw a positive result, Senderos might have a harder time duplicating that result against Newcastle on Saturday.

Senderos could miss at least three games after suffering a groin injury, according to Get West London. Manager Rene Meulensteen said Senderos "won't be fit for the Norwich and Hull games. We need to assess him to see if he will be available to face West Ham."

The West Ham match occurs on January 1, so Meulensteen has effectively ruled Senderos out for the rest of 2013. The defender has one goal and one assist in 10 appearances this season.

Senderos scored his first goal in two years as he was able to finish a Bryan Ruiz corner kick into the back of the net Monday during Fulham's 4-1 victory over Crystal Palace.

Senderos now has taken just one shot on the season. His value will remain low as he will depend on Fulham to keep a clean sheet each week for reliable fantasy production.
