"Manny took a bang on his shoulder," Boro coach Colin Cooper has said.
"But he's a tough fella and he is quite positive about his chances.
"We have had it looked at and the great thing is there is no fracture.
"Manny is desperate to play and we are desperate for him to play because he makes a difference for us.
"You miss any player of his quality, so we will keep our fingers crossed but it was a very nasty bang."
