Sheffield Wednesday had a number of players absent from their training session on Thursday, however, it was more surprising that two men were involved.
With the international break currently taking place, it is not uncommon for the squad to be depleted as much as the Owls were.
Both Almen Abdi and Sam Hutchinson were pictured taking part in the session led by Jos Luhukay, despite both not having featured for the Hillsborough outfit since March and August respectively.
Abdi, who has been with Wednesday since 2016 and has recently recovered from a hamstring injury, has found it difficult to make a breakthrough since joining from Watford and has made just a handful of appearances.
Hutchinson has been out with a groin injury and has not featured for the Owls since the middle of August, despite having recovered a while ago.
Abdi and Hutchinson have both been absent from the first-team for a considerable time, although Luhukay has always been keen not to rush players back.
The Dutchman prefers to give his players game-time in the developmental side before putting them back into the senior side.
Abdi, in particular, appears to have become a forgotten man at Sheffield Wednesday, however, his appearance in training with the first-team could signal that he may get a chance to finally show the Owls what he can do on the pitch.
