Vlaar (calf) was able to play the full 90 minutes during the 3-0 loss to Everton on Saturday.

Before Saturday, Vlaar had been unable to compete with Aston Villa since he initially injured his calf against Hull City on Aug. 31. Being that he's one of their best players, look for him to round into shape as Villa faces QPR on Monday.

Manager Paul Lambert confirmed Thursday that Vlaar has overcome his calf injury and he is expected to face Everton on Saturday.

Vlaar has been sidelined since before the September international break due to the calf injury, but he figures to slot back into the starting XI for a Villa squad that played very well at the beginning of the season before his injury.

Vlaar (calf) will not play for Holland during the international break but is on track to return for Aston Villa during their upcoming match against Everton on Oct. 18, the Birmingham Mail reports.

Vlaar has only been able to play in three Premier League matches this season while he's had to nurse an ongoing calf injury that he suffered against Hull City back in August. It's still unclear whether or not he'll be in the starting XI if he ultimately plays against Everton, but his return to health is inching closer nonetheless.

Vlaar (calf) will likely miss Saturday's match against Manchester City. "This one is probably too early. Hopefully we will see him after the [international] break" said manager Paul Lambert on Thursday.

If Vlaar does in fact stay sidelined Saturday, it'll be the fourth-straight Premier League match that he has missed due to his lingering calf injury. The extra two weeks of rest during the international break should certainly benefit the defender for returning against Everton on Oct. 18.

Vlaar (calf) is doubtful for Saturday's match against Chelsea, the Birmingham Mail reports.

Vlaar has had a hard time getting back to fitness and may ultimately have to miss out against Chelsea. If he's unable to suit up Saturday, his next opportunity to get on the pitch will be against Manchester City on Oct. 4.

Vlaar continues to battle a calf injury and he could miss out on Saturday's Premier League match against Arsenal, the Birmingham Mail reports.

The Aston Villa defense has been excellent this season and Vlaar has been a strong contributor despite missing last week's match. Unfortunately, they have Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Everton on the fixture list, so it's tough to play Vlaar with much confidence even if he is fit.

Vlaar (calf) wasn't deemed fit for Saturday's match against Liverpool and was sidelined as a result.

Vlaar has been a staple in Villa's defense this season, but they didn't need his efforts Saturday as the Villans pulled off a surprising 1-0 victory over Liverpool. Looking ahead, Vlaar will likely have another late fitness test ahead of Saturday's match against Arsenal.

Vlaar (calf) will have a late fitness test prior to Saturday's match with Liverpool, reports.

Vlaar's injured calf left him sidelined for international competition over the break for his native Netherlands. He's been unable to get fit, despite the two-week break, but seems to leaning towards suiting up Saturday.
