Reading will give defender Matt Miazga a fitness test ahead of the Sky Bet Championship clash with QPR.
Miazga missed the 3-0 drubbing of Derby with a hamstring injury and his ability to train has been limited.
Romanian striker George Puscas is out for at least a month because of a shoulder injury.
Reading are also missing Andy Yiadom because of a knee problem and he is not expected back until January at the earliest.
QPR keeper Liam Kelly has returned to training after recovering from a thigh injury.
Kelly sustained the damage against Leeds on November 2 and while he has made good progress the Reading game has probably come too soon for his return.
French centre-back Yoann Barbet recovered from his own thigh issue but is now battling a calf problem.
Midfielder Charlie Owens continues to recover from knee surgery and is out.
