The goalkeeper has been in full training and is now fit enough for first-team action ahead of the visit of Hull, and boss Nigel Pearson must choose between him, Mark Schwarzer and Ben Hamer.
Dean Hammond (calf) and Anthony Knockaert (personal reasons) are out for Pearson’s side, though, with the Foxes bottom of the Premier League.
Hull trio Mohamed Diame, Liam Rosenior and James Chester are close to first-team returns but will not be fit for the trip to Leicester.
Rosenior is back in training and could be joined by Diame and Chester next week, though none are ready to take on the Foxes.
Robbie Brady (calf) remains sidelined and Robert Snodgrass (knee) is out for the season.
