Bradley Garmston is undertaking a week of intensive training at St George’s Park.
The Gillingham left-back is at the Football Association’s national football centre as part of his recovery from a dislocated kneecap.
Garmston, 22, was injured early on in pre-season.
Boss Justin Edinburgh had an update on his progress and was happy to announce that the player is nearing a full recovery.
He said: “We will assess him when he comes back but when he does I don’t think he will be too far off, maybe another week.
“We have used the facility before and it is available to all clubs. We got him into a position where he could go there and have a real intense one-to-one week.
“It is an amazing facility and one you have to utilise when you get the chance. Maybe we can incorporate him back into training next week. That would be another big boost.”
New loan signing Baily Cargill, meanwhile, has yet to link up with the Gills following his loan move from Bournemouth. He is staying with the Premier League club for another week to build up his fitness.
