Italy stand-off Ramiro Pez will be fit for the RBS 6 Nations Championship match against England at Twickenham.
But coach John Kirwan, who will name his squad for the March 9 match on Tuesday, is still waiting for news of his first-choice fly-half Diego Dominguez, who like Pez hails from the Andean city of Cordoba in Argentina.
Pez had a scan on his injured left ankle after limping off at the end of Saturday's 37-13 defeat by Ireland but tests showed no serious problem for the Rotherham player.
However, there is no news yet about Dominguez, who was replaced by Pez against Ireland.
England flanker James Haskell insists he will be pushing as hard as possible to be back from a toe injury in time to make his case for a spot in Eddie Jones' side looking to defend their RBS 6 Nations title next year.
