Frederic Michalak has been named in France's team to play Scotland in this weekend's RBS 6 Nations clash at Murrayfield.
The Toulouse fly-half had been struggling with a niggling groin injury but has been included in Bernard Laporte's starting line-up for Sunday's encounter with the Scots.
That means uncapped Bourgoin fly-half Benjamin Boyet, who had been tipped to take over the number 10 shirt if Michalak had been ruled out, has had to settle for a place on the bench.
As expected, Toulouse lock Fabien Pelous returns to captain the side after serving a nine-week ban for elbowing Australia hooker Brendan Cannon during November's Test match against the Wallabies.
Winger Christophe Dominici and full-back Nicolas Brusque have also been named in the team after being recalled to the national fold earlier this month.
