The 23-year-old has been out with a shin problem and will take part in a friendly match next week.
Club captain Brian Easton is still out following ankle surgery.
The striker, still linked with a move to Lille, was left out of last week's win over Kilmarnock after Gerrard accused him of taking his "eye off the ball" in training. He has improved his focus this week, but Gerrard will leave it late before deciding if he faces Brian Rice's team.
But the comeback target for Joe Aribo (ankle) and Jermain Defoe (hamstring) has been pushed back to Dundee United's Ibrox visit after the international break, while Nikola Katic (knee) is a long-term absentee.
