Rochdale will have Jordan Williams back from suspension for their FA Cup third-round clash with Newcastle.
The midfielder served a one-match ban during Wednesday's League One victory over Accrington following his dismissal in the defeat by Gillingham last weekend.
Rhys Norrington-Davies (facial injury), Matt Done (knock) and Aaron Morley (thigh) all remain doubts while 17-year-old Luke Matheson, who scored at Old Trafford earlier this season, could get another chance on a national stage.
Newcastle head coach Steve Bruce is facing a major injury crisis.
Bruce lost defenders Javier Manquillo and Fabian Schar, as well as midfielder Jonjo Shelvey, to hamstring problems and wing-back Jetro Willems to a groin strain during Wednesday's 3-0 Premier League defeat by Leicester, and all four will miss out.
DeAndre Yedlin is available after X-rays revealed that he had not broken a hand in the same match, while midfielder Matt Ritchie could make the squad for the first time since suffering a nasty ankle injury against the Foxes in August.
However, Florian Lejeune will be rested after playing four games in 12 days on his return from a second cruciate ligament injury and fellow defenders Jamaal Lascelles (fractured tibia), Ciaran Clark (calf), Paul Dummett (groin), midfielder Jack Colback (medial ligament) and striker Allan Saint-Maximin (hamstring) are out, while striker Andy Carroll is nursing a hip problem.
