Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal said Friday that Rojo (shoulder) could feature Saturday against Hull City.

Rojo has been sidelined since suffering a dislocated shoulder in the Manchester derby Nov. 2, but he has returned to full training and could actually play as a right-back in place of the injured Luke Shaw, who will be sidelined for up to six weeks because of an ankle injury.

Rojo (shoulder) returned to training this week, though he is unlikely to play Saturday against Hull City, The Guardian reports.

The report notes that manager Louis van Gaal prefers players to train for at least two weeks before returning, so it is possible that he could return next weekend against Southampton, with Tuesday's tie with Stoke City likely too soon.

Rojo will not require surgery on his dislocated shoulder, but he will still be sidelined for at last six weeks.

Manager Louis van Gaal added that Rojo would have been out at least 12 weeks if surgery were required. With Chris Smalling (suspension), Jonny Evans (ankle) and Phil Jones (shin) also out, van Gaal will likely choose his centrebacks among Paddy McNail, Tyler Blackett, Tom Thorpe and midfielder Michael Carrick.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rojo is expected to be out up to six weeks after dislocating his shoulder in Sunday's match against Manchester City, reports the Daily Mail.

The dislocation stretched ligaments that normally hold the joint in place, and he could be out up to three months depending on how quickly he is able to recover. The injury is bad news for the Manchester United back line that is already missing a number of key players due to suspension and injury.

Rojo suffered a dislocated shoulder during Sunday's Manchester derby and he will miss at least next Saturday's match against Crystal Palace.

With Chris Smalling also out after picking up two yellow cards against Manchester City, it's unclear who will start in central defense against Palace, with Paddy McNair at least one option.

Rojo suffered a left shoulder injury during Sunday's Manchester derby and had to be replaced by Paddy McNair.

United were already down a central defender after Chris Smalling picked up two first-half yellow cards. It's unclear how severe the injury is, though he had to be stretchered off the pitch.

Rojo started and played all 90 minutes of Manchester United's 4-0 win over QPR on Sunday, registering a clean sheet in his club debut.

Rojo was finally able to make his debut Sunday following his 20 million move from Sporting Lisbon last month, after his work permit was delayed. He is expected to keep his starting spot in the starting XI and United have another decent clean sheet opportunity coming up against Leicester City on Sunday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rojo is in the starting XI for Manchester United's Premier League match against QPR on Sunday.

Rojo has not made his Man U debut due to delays in getting his work visa, but he has it now and he's inserted right into the starting XI. He's a big part of the back-line overhaul, so he should be a consistent member of the starting XI from this point forward.
