Dean Smith admitted he was concerned after John Egan took a whack in the face during his Ireland debut against Iceland.
The Brentford defender was caught by an elbow in the opening exchanges and had to have his head bandaged up for the second time this season.
However, he's fully fit to face Bristol City on Saturday and Smith has noticed he's returned to the Bees' Jersey Road training ground in good spirits.
The head coach said: “He's got a bit of a bruiser coming off the eye. You can't get the smile off his face after making his debut.
“I wasn't watching the game but my wife's parents are Irish. She was sending me the tweets and whatnot and after 40 seconds, the tweet came across that there was a bit of claret coming from his eye was a bit worrying.”
Elsewhere on the injury front, Lewis Macleod has followed in the footsteps of Scott Hogan and Andreas Bjelland in going to Philadelphia for treatment on his anterior cruciate ligament injury.
Smith added: “Lewis Macleod is in Philadelphia at the moment. He's gone to the same place that Scott Hogan and Andreas Bjelland went to. I believe it's going well.
“Alan Judge is training with us. Alan McCormack is training with us but missed a couple of days. We had quite a few out there today so not bad.”
Former Chelsea Josh McEachran will be unavailable for the game with Bristol City but the Bees are hopeful he can return sooner rather than later.
Smith explained: “Josh McEachran is not on the training ground yet but we're hoping his rehabilitation steps up now.”
