QPR will have a look at Rio Ferdinand in training over the next two days before deciding whether he's fit to face Leicester on Saturday.
The ex-Manchester United defender has been out for three games suspended following his infamous Tweet ban, and boss Harry Redknapp admits lack of game time is a worry before a match that could go a long way in deciding Rs survival chances.
"Rio's hopefully going to be fit," he said. "He hasn't played for a few weeks and we need to look at in in training."
The manager agrees it's been a baptism of fire for a player set to hang up his boots at the end of the season, and mostly because of the culture shock of playing at the wrong end of the table.
Harry added: "It's been difficult, and he's come from a team that's winning every week. It was difficult to adjust, well maybe not adjust, but just difficult, and he got little protection in the early games."
Richard Dunne is ruled out with a one-game ban, but Rangers have no further injury concerns with Eduardo Vargas and Mauricio Isla, missing in the 1-0 defeat at Newcastle last Saturday, set to return to play a team without a goal in five games.
For all that, Redknapp reckons Leicester will be no pushovers.
"It'll be a tough game, because Leicester were far away and the best in the Championship last season. But it's really important period to get good points from the next few games."
