Okore (knee) is on the bench Saturday against Watford.

Okore makes his long-awaited return from a serious knee injury, though with Ciaran Clark and Micah Richards starting in the two centerback spots, it's unclear if Okore will get a shot to compete for a job.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Okore is unlikely to play in Saturday's match versus Everton because of a knee injury.

The 23-year-old has not played this season as he continues to recover from a long-term knee issue, but he is said to be progressing toward a return. Saturday's match will come too soon, however, and he will likely be sidelined once again.

Okore was an unused substitute in Aston Villa's last fixture against Southampton.

Okore is now fit to play and made the substitute roster for the match on Oct. 28, however he has yet to see the pitch for a Premier League fixture this season. Look for him to continue his return to fitness and make an appearance in an upcoming match for Aston Villa.

Okore (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's match against Chelsea, the Birmingham Mail reports.

Okore has yet to play this season due to the injury, and while he's expected to compete for a starting spot when he returns, though that likely won't happen until November. Micah Richards is expected to continue to start, with Jose Angel Crespo and Joleon Lescott battling for the other spot.

Okore (knee) has resumed light training, Paul Brown of reports.

Okore had knee surgery back in June and there's still not a specific time table for his comeback despite making progress by resuming training. Looking ahead, the defender may be given limited minutes off the bench before a return to the starting XI becomes a possibility.

Okore had knee surgery in June, and he is expected to be out until September, the Birmingham Mail reports.

Okore was getting consistent starts at centerback toward the end of last season, but the knee started bothering him due to overworking. He previously missed 14 months because of a torn ACL, and Villa will likely have to manage his playing time early in the season to ensure he doesn't suffer any setbacks.

Okore was unable to play in Denmark's loss to France on Sunday because of a knee injury, the Birmingham Mail reports.

Okore had a scan on the knee, which has been swollen, and while there isn't significant structural damage, he is a doubt to play Saturday against Manchester United.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Okore scored on a header in the 48th minute during Aston Villa's 2-1 loss to Chelsea, Villa's first Premier League goal since Dec. 20.

Okore had a very impressive game overall, adding four tackles, four interceptions and six clearances to his first goal of the season, though he did pick up a yellow card. Ron Vlaar was available off the bench after recovering from a knee injury, so it's possible that Okore could have some pressure on his starting job, though after Saturday's performance, it would be surprising if he were dropped.
