Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan has returned to the Black Stars camp to undergo treatment following Wednesday's injury at the Africa Cup of Nations.
Tests in the Gabonese capital of Libreville have shown that the injury is not as bad as initially feared.
Tests revealed that the Black Stars skipper suffered 'a left thigh muscle contusion', Black Stars medical officer Adam Baba revealed.
Gyan has now joined the Black Stars camp in Oyem to undergo treatment to make him fully fit.
He suffered the setback during Wednesday's final Group D match against Egypt.
