Interim manager Guus Hiddink admitted it was looking increasingly unlikely the Blues captain would win his fitness race as he battled to make the squad.
Any lingering hopes were dashed this morning as the veteran defender failed to appear as the rest of the team trotted out to perform some routines in front of the cameras.
Former Barcelona winger Pedro managed a run out at Cobham after overcoming a hamstring complaint while Kenedy also took part despite injury concerns.
Diego Costa was rested as a precaution on Saturday for the 1-1 draw with Stoke and Hiddink’s decision not to risk him looks to have been vindicated as he trained in Surrey.
Alexandre Pato, who is yet to make his debut since arriving on loan from Corinthians in January, was also present.
Even Radamel Falcao joined in at the club’s training ground despite his omission from the Champions League squad list, ruling him out of contention to face PSG.
PSG are not in great form heading into the last 16 showdown but should be considerably fresher than a Chelsea side who were frustrated by Stoke City on Saturday.
Laurent Blanc rested key players like David Luiz, Thiago Silva and Thiago Motta for the weekend stalemate with Montpellier.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic played a shade over an hour of that 0-0 draw while Costa missed out against the Potters as he nursed a slight injury problem.
Hiddink said of the clash: "We are not the favourites. We have regained confidence and have quality but PSG can rest five, six or seven players."
