Glen Johnson has been discharged from the hospital after undergoing scans on the injury that kept him out of Liverpool's 2-0 defeat at Arsenal.
The fullback complained of severe pain on the right side of his face and jaw shortly before the Premier League clash was scheduled to kick off and was taken to hospital for tests.
Initial scans indicated a localized infection, but the England international was allowed to return home Saturday evening and is likely to be fit for training in the week.
Medical staff at Anfield expect Johnson to be back in contention for November 9's match against Fulham.
Johnson has featured in five league games for Brendan Rodgers's men this season on either side of a spell on the sidelines because of an ankle injury, with Liverpool picking up 13 points from a possible 15 in those matches.
