"He has lost 19lbs and we would have preferred that he hadn't lost so much weight, but he has been on nothing but milkshakes since the injury," said Rennie.
"But he has been reviewed at hospital twice a week and they are very happy with his progress. Hopefully, we can get the brace off his jaw next week and start some very light training like on an exercise bike for about 10 days before he can start to do any jogging. He certainly can't have any contact for eight weeks from the injury.
"He will be working some long hours and will be doing double training sessions, so there is a lot of work ahead and it is touch and go whether he will be available for the first team again.
"However, the bone has knitted very well and there will be no long-term effect."
