Hearts winger Neil McCann has returned to light training for the first time since breaking his leg in August.
The former Scotland international suffered the break in the Jambos' 5-0 trashing by Celtic in the first month of the season.
McCann has yet to resume full-contact training with his team-mates but took part in warm-up exercises this week.
"It's a major step and it's great to see him back on the training ground," assistant coach Stephen Frail told Hearts News.
"His attitude has been first class and there's no doubt we have missed his influence around the place."
