Shawcross could return from his back injury to play Saturday against Watford, manager Mark Hughes said Friday.

Shawcross hasn't played yet this season after having back surgery in August, but he's played three U-21 matches to build up his fitness. Geoff Cameron and Marc Muniesa getting most of the centerback starts, with Phillipp Wollscheid also getting a few opportunities.

Shawcross (back) played 90 minutes in a behind-closed-doors friendly Thursday against Birmingham City, but manager Mark Hughes said it will likely be a few more weeks before Shawcross can return to the first team.

Shawcross underwent back surgery in early August and was given a two-month timetable for a return. It's looking more like it could be a solid three months, but it's certainly encouraging that he's getting closer now instead of news of a setback. Philpp Wollscheid and Geoff Cameron will continue to start at the center back spots while Shawcross is out.

Shawcross (back) could feature for Stoke's U-21 side next month. "The good news is that Ryan is progressing well and hopefully, in the next few weeks, he will get some game time at development level," manager Mark Hughes said.

Hughes has suffered through a long-term back injury, which was further exacerbated earlier in the year and required surgery. Hughes' return to the Potters' lineup would be a huge boost to a back line that could use reinforcements.

Shawcross will be sidelined for at least two months because of back surgery, the BBC reports.

Shawcross has really struggled to train during the preseason and he finally visited a specialist this week to help determine the cause of his back pain. With Shawcross out, some combination of Philipp Wollscheid, Marc Wilson and Marc Muniesa will center the back line, though Geoff Cameron can also play there.

Shawcross will visit a specialist Tuesday to help determine if he needs surgery on his injured back, the Stoke Sentinel reports.

Shawcross has been a minimal participant in preseason training due to the ailment, including sitting out their latest friendly against Porto in Cologne on Sunday. Shawcross will be a significant long shot to play in the Premier League opener against Liverpool on Sunday, and it's possible surgery could sideline him for much longer.
