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.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.

Oviedo will not join Costa Rica over the international break, as he remains in England to have a procedure to remove a screw from his surgically-repaired leg, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Oviedo suffered a double-leg fracture in January, but made his Premier League return during last Sunday's 2-1 loss to Manchester United. While the procedure will keep him out of international duty, he is not expected to miss much, if any, Premier League action.

Oviedo played his first match on Tuesday for Everton since breaking his leg in January, reports the Daily Mail.

Oviedo broke his leg while facing Stevenage in January's FA Cup match, but made a full return to action in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday. Everton lost the match 3-0.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez said Monday that Oviedo (leg) could play in Everton's Capital One Cup match against Swansea City on Tuesday.

Oviedo has been sidelined since suffering a double-fracture in his left leg during an FA Cup match against Stevenage in January, but returned to full training a few weeks ago. He'll have to work on his match fitness, but his Capital One Cup appearance will be a big step forward. Even when he gets back to full fitness, it's unclear if he'll find a way into the starting XI for Premier League matches.
