Harry Maguire is in contention for his first Premier League appearance of the season for Hull when Manchester United visit on Saturday.
Maguire managed the full 90 minutes on Tuesday as the Tigers overcame Exeter 3-1 in the EFL Cup and could feature against United this weekend.
However, caretaker boss Mike Phelan could keep the faith with midfielder Jake Livermore in central defence alongside Curtis Davies on Saturday.
Greg Luer faces several weeks on the sidelines after sustaining a knee injury but Robert Snodgrass, Tom Huddlestone, Andy Robertson and Abel Hernandez are among those who will return after being rested in midweek.
Provisional squad: Jakupovic, Robertson, Livermore, Davies, Maguire, Elmohamady, Clucas, Meyler, Huddlestone, Hernandez, Snodgrass, Diomande, Maloney, Bowen, Clackstone, Kuciak, Olley, Tymon.
