Oviedo said he is nearly fully recovered from his foot injury, though he could miss the start of the season because of a lack of match fitness, The Guardian reports.

Even when he's fully fit, Oviedo is firmly behind Leighton Baines on the depth chart, which means his playing time will be minimal if the latter is healthy.

Oviedo will not travel to Singapore for the Barclays Asia Cup as he is still recovering from a fracture in his foot.

Oviedo continues to progress in his rehab, and he is expected to be fit either just before the next Premier League season starts or slightly after. That being said, with Leighton Baines expected to be fit from his ankle injury, there isn't much playing time available for Oviedo to make much of a fantasy impact.

Oviedo (hamstring) has been ruled out for Saturday's match against Southampton.

Even when he's fit, Oviedo is a backup to Leighton Baines at leftback, though he may be stuck behind Luke Garbutt as well when he does return.

Manager Roberto Martinez said Friday that Oviedo is "probably three weeks away from being fully fit" from his hamstring injury.

Luke Garbutt could get another start at leftback Sunday against Newcastle unless Leighton Baines can pass a late fitness test for his groin. Either way, Oviedo wasn't likely to get much playing time.

Oviedo will face a late fitness test ahead of Sunday's match against Leicester City after suffering a minor hamstring injury Thursday against Young Boys in the Europa League.

Even if he passes fit, Oviedo is unlikely to get the start, as Leighton Baines has recovered from the knee injury that has kept him out of the last three matches.

Oviedo (leg) returned to the pitch against FK Krasnodar during Europa League competition.

Oviedo (leg) had a procedure to remove a screw from his surgically-repaired leg back in October and has been sidelined ever since. With his appearance against FK Krasnodar, the 24-year-old should be available moving forward.

Oviedo (leg) is still sidelined after having surgery earlier in October but is expected to start scrimmaging sometime next week, the Independent reports.

Oviedo was originally expected to be ready for competition a couple weeks ago but still hasn't managed to make a return to the pitch. The 24-year-old will likely see time on the pitch when he makes his eventual return for Everton, despite only playing in one Premier League match this season.

Despite having a procedure over the international break to remove a screw from his surgically-repaired leg, Ovideo is expected to be fully fit to face Aston Villa on Oct. 18. "Bryan should be available for Villa," manager Roberto Martinez said Thursday. "He has reacted really well to the straightforward procedure to remove the screw. It's not a situation where he needs to get fully fit because he is not going to lose any sort of match fitness. He's not going to be detrained. In a couple of days, Bryan will be available for selection again."

Everton have been hit by a number of injuries in the midfield, highlighted by Kevin Mirallas (hamstring) and Ross Barkley (knee), the latter of whom has yet to play this season. Oviedo has missed a significant amount of international duty for Costa Rica, but looks poised to pick up some regular playing time for Everton in the coming weeks.
