Owen Farrell has been passed fit to play again after picking up a foot injury during Saracens 28-24 win over title rivals Northampton Saints.
Farrell was forced off at half-time at Allianz Park on Sunday and was later seen watching from the stands with his foot in a plastic boot.
But the fly-half is expected to return to training later this week after scans revealed no serious damage.
Saracens need just two more points to secure a home play-off spot as the Aviva Premiership nears its climax, but with a Heineken Cup semi-final against French heavyweights Clermont Auvergne on the horizon, director of rugby Mark McCall will be relieved to have Farrell available.
