Haskell picked up the injury during Stade's Heineken Cup loss to Edinburgh on Saturday but will now be reintroduced into light training over the next 36 hours at England's camp in Portugal. His club team-mate Tom Palmer has left the squad for domestic duty as planned, having trained with them in the early part of the week.
Northampton Saints wing Chris Ashton will be available for their Anglo-Welsh Cup meeting with Sale on Friday after being released from the squad until Sunday. Ben Youngs, the Leicester scrum-half called up as cover for Harry Ellis, will return to the England Saxons squad as they prepare to face Ireland 'A' at the Recreation Ground on January 31.
