Can returned from an ankle injury and got the start in Liverpool's 3-2 victory over QPR on Sunday.

Can got the start over Joe Allen to fill the defensive role alongside captain Steven Gerrard. Between Can and Allen, it is unclear who is the preferred defensive midfield choice for manager Brendan Rodgers. However, due to their positions, neither hold much value in fantasy leagues.

Can has returned to training and could feature in Sunday's match against QPR after recovering from an ankle injury, manager Brendan Rodgers confirmed Friday.

Can made two substitute appearances for Liverpool before suffering the ankle injury while playing for Germany's U-21 side in September. With a crowded midfield that includes the return of Joe Allen (ankle), Can will find starts tough to come by.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers confirmed Thursday that Can could miss up to six weeks with an ankle injury he sustained while playing for Germany's U21 side.

Can has made two appearances for the Reds this season, though he hasn't had much of an impact, and his absence isn't like to affect many fantasy squads.

Can came on in the 75th minute of Liverpool's 1-3 loss to Manchester City on Monday.

Can replaced Joe Allen after the game was already out of reach, at a score of 0-3. The 20-year-old German prospect, barring an injury, likely won't see enough time on the pitch to be relevant in most fantasy formats this season.

Can suffered a minor calf injury during Liverpool's preseason match against Preston North End on Saturday and he had to be withdrawn after just 20 minutes, the club's official web site reports. "He just had a little bit of tightness in his calf, so as a precaution we took him off early on," manager Brendan Rodgers said.

Can is part of the influx of players brought in following the 75 million sale of Luis Suarez to FC Barcelona, and he is expected to be a solid contributor this season.

Liverpool announced Thursday that they have agreed to a transfer of Can from Bayer Leverkusen. Liverpool are believed to have activated Can's release clause with a 9.75 million bid submitted Wednesday, according to the Daily Mail.

Can scored three goals in 29 Bundesliga appearances last season and the 20-year-old could very well find a role in the Liverpool midfield next season.
