Forward Aston Villa Premier
Benteke's (Achilles) rehab process is ahead of schedule to the point where he may be able to rejoin Villa on the pitch in September, Mirror reports.
Benteke hadn't been rumored to make a comeback until sometime in November. The two-week international break early in the EPL season will allow Benteke to potentially only miss three games if he's fit enough for the Sept. 13 matchup with Liverpool. Being one of Villa's best players, he'll likely assume his spot up front on the starting XI when he ultimately returns.
