Inverness have several players back in training following injury but they are unlikely to be thrown straight back into the team for the visit of Rangers.
Kenny Gillet, Chris Innes and Gil Blumenshtein all resumed training with their team-mates this week with the latter two more likely to be involved.
David Proctor and Kevin McCann both remain on the sidelines with knee injuries.
Sasa Papac is back in the Rangers squad.
The full-back has been out of action since the 3-0 defeat to Hibernian on November 10 when he left the pitch on a stretcher following a clash of heads but has had a couple of days training and is in contention.
However, midfielder Maurice Edu, who has suffered severe tonsilitis while also being out with a knee injury, will be out for another week.
Inverness (from): Esson, Tokely, Munro, Cox, Shinnie, Duff, Hayes, Ross, Foran, Rooney, Odhiambo, Sutherland, Golabek, McBain, Tuffey, Morrison, Duncan, Sanchez.
Rangers (from): McGregor, Whittaker, Papac, Weir, Bougherra, Cole, McMillan, Foster, Davis, McCulloch, Hutton, Naismith, Weiss, Miller, Beattie, Perry, Fleck, Wylde, Alexander.
