Albrighton, who missed Leicester's Premier League opener against Everton last weekend due to a groin injury, came on in the 68th minute for Riyad Mahrez during Saturday's 2-0 loss to Chelsea.

Albrighton made his Leicester debut with his substitute appearance after joining on a free transfer this summer from Aston Villa, where he spent the last 16 seasons. Leicester don't have a ton of high-value fantasy performers and unfortunately for Albrighton, his return to fitness doesn't change that fact.

Albrighton is dealing with a groin injury and he faces a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's Premier League opener against Everton. Manager Nigel Pearson said "Marc Albrighton is close but may not make the weekend."

Albrighton spent a majority of his career with Aston Villa, who released him this summer, allowing him to join newly-promoted Leicester City. He should get plenty of playing time, although that will come once he's fully fit.

Albrighton (broken metatarsal) is expected to be out of action for Aston Villa until September 22nd.

The midfielder will certainly miss the opening few matches of the season with a tricky injury. It will take time for him to heal fully, and may take a while to return to action.
