Lampard (thigh) came on in the 68th minute of Manchester City's 2-2 draw with QPR on Saturday, but he did not attempt a shot.

Lampard has missed time recently due to the injury, but since he is not in the England squad for international play over the next two weeks, he'll have extra time to recover and prepare to face Swansea City on Nov. 22.

Lampard has recovered from his thigh injury and is available for Saturday's Premier League match against QPR, manager Manuel Pellegrini confirmed Friday.

With David Silva out with a knee injury, it's possible that Lampard could get the start, though after just recovering, the more likely scenario is that he'll come off the bench.

Lampard (thigh) will not play in Wednesday's Champions League match against CSKA Moscow, but he could return for Saturday's Premier League match against QPR, the Manchester Evening News reports.

Lampard has been sidelined since suffering the injury Oct. 18 against Tottenham, and while he has returned to training, Wednesday's tie will be too soon for a return. With David Silva out for another few weeks due to a knee injury, Lampard could see extended minutes when he returns to full fitness.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini said Tuesday that he does not expect Lampard (thigh) to play Sunday against Manchester United, but he may be fit the following week against Queens Park Rangers.

Lampard has been sidelined since being stretchered off Oct. 18 against Tottenham and is still not fully training. He was playing very well for City before going down with the injury, and there continues to be talk about extending his loan from New York City FC until the end of January.

Lampard will not play in Manchester City's Champions League match at CSKA Moscow on Tuesday due to the thigh injury he picked up last Saturday against Tottenham, ESPN FC reports.

While the injury is serious enough not to bring Lampard to Russia, it's possible he could return for Saturday's Premier League match at West Ham.

Lampard had to be stretchered off in the 28th minute of Manchester City's Premier League match against Tottenham on Saturday after picking up a suspected thigh injury.

Lampard was having an excellent game for City, assisting on Sergio Aguero's first goal and then picking up a foul in the box that led to Aguero's second. He'll undergo additional scans to determine the severity of the injury, but by the looks of it, he could very well miss Tuesday's Champions League match at CSKA Moscow on Tuesday/

Lampard scored in the 87th minute of Manchester City's 4-2 Premier League win over Hull City on Saturday.

Lampard has now scored four goals in his last three games in all competitions, including two in Premier League play. He's been a surprisingly good contributor lately, with recent talk indicating that Man City will look to extend his stay through the end of January, though NYC FC have denied those rumors. Up next is a tough Champions League match against Roma on Tuesday before a return to Premier League play Saturday against Aston Villa.

Lampard came on in the 78th minute for Aleksander Kolarov and scored the equalizer in the 85th minute in Manchester City's 1-1 draw with Chelsea on Sunday.

Lampard's goal took away two points from the club that decided not to bring him back this season, prompting his move to NYC FC and subsequently Man City on loan until January. Despite the bittersweet symphony of an event, he remains a fairly weak fantasy option given his limited playing time.
