If you have been anxiously waiting to see midfielder Maurice Edu get back on the field, you may not have to wait much longer.

According to the Rangers club website, Edu is expected to return to full training for Rangers next week, and he could be back to first-team action after November's international break, when the U.S. national team will play Slovakia and Denmark.

The timetable for recovery will rule Edu out for the U.S. team's friendlies, but Edu should be available to play for Rangers for about a month before the winter break.

Edu has been sidelined since late May after undergoing surgery for a knee injury he suffered in last season's finale against Dundee United. The recovery was originally expected to take approximately three months, but Edu had a problem with his knee that set him back until now.

Think Edu's return will give Rangers a much-needed boost? Do you see him challenging for a starting role with the U.S. national team?
