Courtois (knee) has started kicking the ball again and is scheduled to get the all clear for the final Champions League group game on Dec. 9, the Daily Star reports.

Courtois, who has been sidelined since September with a serious knee injury, has finally been given a return date to the joy of Chelsea fans. In his absence, Asmir Begovic has been in the net and has successfully held down the fort. Although a return date has been set, Courtois' injury could still be reevaluated in the upcoming weeks.

Courtois (knee) is hoping to be back in action as planned in December following his procedure and the start of his rehabilitation, The Guardian reports.

Courtois, the usual starter for Chelsea, is sidelined giving Asmir Begovic the starting goalkeeper position. He will continue his recovery and therapy to prepare for his expected return in December to help a struggling Chelsea squad this season.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho said Friday that the earliest Courtois could return from his knee injury is the first week of December.

Asmir Begovic will continue to start for Courtois, while the Marco Amelia has also been training with the club and could compete for Jamal Blackman for the backup job while Courtois is sidelined.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho said Friday that Courtois will require surgery on his injured knee, and will be "out for quite a long time."

Courtois suffered the injury in training after returning from the international break. It's a big hit for Chelsea, though backup Asmir Begovic is a long-time starter in the Premier League and should be a solid replacement.

Courtois suffered a knee injury in training Wednesday and could miss Saturday's match against Crystal Palace, the London Evening Standard reports.

The report notes that it is not believed that he suffered a torn ACL or MCL, but he could be facing an extended absence. He'll undergo scans Thursday to help determine the severity of the issue, and if he has to miss any time, Asmir Begovic would move into the starting XI.

Courtois made four saves in Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace.

Courtois was not to blame for either goal and has now failed to keep a clean sheet in three starts this season. Much of that is down to a defence that looks unsettled at best and the Belgian may struggle to keep Everton out in the first game following the international break on Sept. 12.

Courtois stopped a penalty kick en route to two saves during Sunday's 3-2 win at West Brom.

Courtois and Chelsea's defense has leaked seven goals through their first three league matches, but the Belgian goalkeeper came up big with a penalty save 14 minutes into Sunday's match. After serving a one-match ban for a red card picked up in the Blues' opening match, Courtois figures to be Chelsea's regular starter moving forward and will try to shore up his defensive unit ahead of this weekend's London derby against Crystal Palace.
