Craig Mackail-Smith believes he could be back in action in mid-September.
But the Albion striker is not setting any hard-and-fast deadlines as he battles back from the first major injury of his career.
The Scotland international suffered a ruptured Achilles in the game at Bristol City.
He told The Argus: ďIím going to miss the rest of this season and maybe a month or so at the start of next season.
ďThe summer has gone for me. I know Iím going to be in every day, working hard to get fitter and stronger.
ďIíve spoken to the physios about that and we want to work slowly towards pre-season. I will probably be about a month behind the boys in pre-season so it wonít be too bad, I donít think.
"They have said it is six months out but with this injury you canít rush it.
ďIíd love to be fit and ready to go by mid-September but day by day will determine the chances of that happening."
