Jelavic (knee) may return Tuesday against Sunderland, the Hull Daily Mail reports.

Jelavic was held out of Saturday's match against Stoke City after picking up a knock in training, but it is apparently not overly serious, giving the team confidence he could get back this week. He could be joined by Dame N'Doye, who was rested against Stoke after being away all week.

Jelavic could be set for an early return to the lineup after he returned to training this week, reports the Hull Daily Mail. Hull manager, Steve Bruce, does not want to rush Jelavic back to the lineup, but is hopeful the striker could feature as soon as Saturday.

Jelavic's return would be a boost for a struggling Hull City squad. He is the team's leading goal scorer and shot taker and would have a decent match up at home against Newcastle United. Be sure to confirm his status Saturday morning before selecting him.
