Conor McManus has declared himself available for selection ahead of Monaghan's trip to Galway this Sunday.
Manager Malachy O'Rourke has adopted a cautious approach with the two-time All-Star's fitness so far in the league and he's happy to do what he's told.
"You do what you're asked and if Malachy asks me to start, I'll start and if he asked me to come in I'll do that," he outlined to The Irish News.
"I'm training away and doing as much as I can and so are the rest of the lads - it's all about getting the head down and trying to perform and hopefully getting picked on the back of that.
"I'm no different to anybody else. That's the environment we're trying to create and instil in the boys from 18 right up to 33 or 34 and once you have that there's no better man than Malachy to lead it.
"Malachy has switched things up. He's playing boys who are in form and who are playing well and training well.
"That's just the way it has been, he said that at the start of the year and he has stuck to it and it's good to see because it keeps everyone on the edge of their seats."
