Mike Brown to return to England training on Friday

Mike Brown will return to England training on Friday, but Luther Burrell will not train due to a calf injury.

England head coach Stuart Lancaster has said that full-back Mike Brown should be back in full training on Friday, as he continues to recover from concussion.

Brown was knocked unconscious during England's win over Italy two weeks ago and he missed Sunday's defeat at Ireland as he suffered a setback in the final days before the match.

Lancaster also added that centre Luther Burrell has a calf injury.

He told reporters: "We reviewed the game [against Ireland] as a whole squad and trained this afternoon. Luther Burrell has a calf strain and will not train tomorrow. Mike Brown has progressed well and we hope to have him back in full training on Friday."

England next play Scotland at Twickenham next Saturday.
