Ireland centre Bundee Aki is set to make his first appearance of the season for Connacht in Friday's Pro14 clash with Edinburgh at Murrayfield.
Scrum-half Kieran Marmion and forward Quinn Roux are also likely to feature against Richard Cockerill's side after coming off the replacements' bench in the 32-13 victory over Zebre at the Sportsground on Saturday.
Ireland second row Ultan Dillane is also set to return for the game, which will be shown live on eir sport 2 [coverage begins 7pm], but centre Tom Farrell misses out through illness.

"I think we are in a good place," Marmion told the province's official website
"Everyone's looking to be fit and put their hand up for selection.
"We've got that at the moment, but obviously as the season goes on we will get injuries. That will open up opportunities for other players.
"At the moment the squad is looking really strong and there's competition all over the park in every position."
Marmion says the signings of Australia back Kyle Godwin from Brumbies in March, and back row Colby Fainga'a from Australian Super Rugby side the Melbourne Rebels in June, has freshened up the Connacht squad.
"The lads who have come in have brought a huge level of intensity, and huge experience," he said.
"They come from a good [rugby] background, bringing their experience over here and raising the level of training.
Connacht's Pro 14 clash against Edinburgh at BT Murrayfield, will be shown live on eir sport 2 this Friday, 14 September [coverage starts 7pm].
