Marco Davide Faraoni should be available for action when Serie A resumes despite fracturing his left hand.
The defender, 20, picked up the injury in training on Tuesday and will need a small operation to help the healing process.
Faraoni, who joined Udinese in the summer from Inter on a co-ownership basis, will return to action with a special protective guard.
Faraoni has appeared in four of the club’s seven League games so far.
The championship will return on the weekend of October 20 and 21 once the international break is over. Udinese will entertain Pescara.
