Bruno Lage has conducted his pre-match press conference ahead of Wolves’ clash with Arsenal tomorrow night.
There are a host of absentees at varying stages of their recovery, and Jonny is among them, having been pictured back in training.
Lage has suggested that the defender could form part of the matchday squad for the first of two meetings with the Gunners within 14 days.
Willy Boly, Yerson Mosquera and Pedro Neto are all deemed to be a bit away from being fit for this game.
But Romain Saiss has come back without any injuries from the Africa Cup of Nations and could play here.
Lage may well try and shake up his first team after the shock FA Cup defeat to Norwich which ended the last remaining chances of silverware this season.

"Jonny works all week with us, he did OK. We'll see what happens tomorrow with him."
Boly, Mosquera and Neto still a bit away.
Lage does not have too many options in that regard and it would be a surprise to see Jonny in from the start against Arsenal.
But it would be a boost to get him back on the pitch after the horrible luck he has had with injuries.
Rayan Ait-Nouri has done well at left wing-back in his absence but the Spaniard will create huge competition for places when he is back and fully fit.
