Hatters boss Nathan Jones hasn’t put a timescale on the return of Danny Green after the 28-year-old continues to recover from the leg break suffered against Northampton last season.
The winger was stretchered off after just 15 minutes after a sickening collision with Cobblers full back Josh Lelan, and isn’t due to be back in the near future as Jones said: “He’s coming along nicely. It’s a bit of an arduous journey, as it takes time for him to put weight on it.
“Whenever you break a bone the healing process is the healing process, and unless you are an avatar you don’t come back quicker than you should.
“Once he’s safe that he can weight bear and the bone’s knitted properly then we can be able to push him on a little bit, same with (Craig) Mackail-Smith as we’ve got to get them back safely.
“I wouldn’t like to say when the timescale is as it is what it is. We won’t be getting either one of them back any time soon, but that’s why we tried to bring in the quality we have.”
