Good luck to the lad
I'm pretty sure he will know better than you when he will be back, unless you're the Sunderland physio.
There's no way he'll go straight into the starting line up unless he means that's what he'll be 100% match fit, but it will be a massive boost to have him on the bench/in the squad in the Christmas fixtures.
