Adedeji Oshilaja is set to miss out for the Gills again this weekend.
The on-loan Cardiff defender has already missed two games with a knee injury picked up in the 1-1 draw at Peterborough last month.
Max Ehmer and John Egan are set to continue their partnership in central defence against Colchester on Saturday, while Oshilaja is expected to be back next weekend.
Gills boss Justin Edinburgh said: “He is improving all the time and we knew it would be three to four weeks, rather than one to two.
“He is on course but Saturday will be too soon. I think he will be available for selection the following week at Barnsley.”
Aaron Morris was back in the side last weekend, after recovering from injury and he was involved in a development game for Gillingham on Wednesday.
Morris has a fight on his hands to get back in, particularly with the form being shown by Josh Wright.
“Whoever is in that team has a job keeping their place and whoever is trying to get in, has a harder one,” added Edinburgh.
