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.

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.

Oviedo continues to progress in his recovery from a broken leg, but he does not have a timetable for return. "Bryan is slowly getting stronger and he has already been reintroduced to the ball and into training with the group," manager Roberto Martinez said Tuesday. "We need to balance the right amount of work with the team with individual work to make sure that area is fully healed. It's still a bit early to be in a competitive phase, but not too far away."

Oviedo suffered a double-fracture in his left leg during an FA Cup match against Stevenage in January and it's unclear when he will be able to return, though it's clear that it won't be in the near-term.

The midfielder suffered the terrible injury in the first half of the match and was taken straight to the hospital. The injury appeared to be a clean break of both bones in his lower leg, and other players on the pitch were in obvious distress in seeing the incident.
