Dawson trained Thursday in preparation of Saturday's match against West Bromwich Albion, reports the Hull Daily Mail. His return to training likely signals he will be included in a Hull City lineup that is dealing with a long list of injuries.

Dawson still leads the team in blocked shots and is second in clearances despite missing all or part of Hull City's last five matches. He will add peripheral stats, however, his chances of a clean sheet are low as Hull City have kept just two on the road all season.

Dawson is expected to miss up to a month because of a hamstring tear, reports Sky Sports.

Dawson regularly contributes to the blocked shots and clearances statistics. However, if your format does not include these scoring stats he will have very low fantasy value when he returns due to Hull City's lack of clean sheet potential.

Dawson was active Saturday despite Hull City losing to Manchester United 3-0. He led the Tigers with eight clearances and three blocked shots, but also received a yellow card for a hard foul on Robin van Persie.

The yellow card was Dawson's first on the season as he is regularly picking up peripheral stats in the Hull City defense despite the lack of clean sheets.

Dawson played the full 90 minutes Sunday against Tottenham. Despite leading the team with 14 clearances and two blocked shots, he was unable to help Hull City to victory as the Tigers lost 1-2.

Dawson resumes his role as one of the most active Hull City defenders as he continues to lead the team in blocked shots and remains second in clearances.

Dawson is expected to return to first team training this week after missing Hull City's previous three matches due to an ankle injury.

Before suffering the ankle injury, Dawson led all Hull City defenders in blocked shots and was second in successful clearances. In formats that account for these stats he could provide some value, but in standard formats his value will remain low due to Hull City's lack of clean sheet potential.

Dawson will miss the next four Hull City matches after scans revealed he suffered ligament damage to his ankle during the Tigers' match against Arsenal, reports the Hull Daily Mail.

Since returning to the Hull City lineup in Gameweek Three, Dawson has led the team in blocked shots and is second in clearances. Three of the next four matches are against teams in the top-half of the table, which could provide troubles for the Hull City defense.

Dawson was forced off late in Saturday's match against Arsenal with an ankle injury, reports the Hull Daily Mail. Dawson led the team in clearances and blocked shots while also putting a shot attempt on target before exiting in the 84th minute. Hull City manager, Steve Bruce, said Dawson's ankle was, "the size of a basketball" after the injury, leaving Dawson's status for the Tigers' next match against Liverpool in doubt.

Since returning to the Hull City lineup in Gameweek Three, Dawson has led the team in blocked shots and is second in clearances. If he does miss time, expect the Tigers defense to take a step back as four of their next five matches are against teams in the top-half of the table.

Dawson led all Hull City defenders with 18 clearances and one blocked shot while keeping a clean sheet in Saturday's 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace.

Saturday was the first time since his first appearance with Hull City that Dawson led the team in clearances. With the next two matches away against Arsenal and Liverpool, Dawson's fantasy value will be low coming out of the international break.
