Hull City's Nigerian right-back Moses Odubajo began his outdoor rehabilitation on Friday, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Odubajo ruptured his medial patellofemoral ligament during a pre-season friendly game against Grimsby Town in July and two months afterwards he looks set to be back doing ight work.
The 20-year-old fell awkwardly in a challenge just three minutes into the Tigers’ opening pre-season fixture and according to his club's Head of Medical Services, Rob Price, Odubajo started his outdoor rehab on Friday.
"He (Moses) had his first run outside today, but it is still relatively early days," Price said.
"I know it seems like he has already been out for a long time but this is generally a four-month recovery and if we get him back any sooner then we will have done well. However, it is positive news with the start of his outdoor rehab."
Odubajo played over 40 games in his first full season for the Tigers last season.
