The Blues skipper jarred his knee in Saturday’s heated goalless draw at QPR days after recovering from an ankle injury.
But tough-nut Terry has given boss Roberto di Matteo a boost by coming through a light training session yesterday as preparations get underway for the visit of Italian champs Juventus tomorrow.
And UEFA bigwigs admit they will be watching the visitors’ bench at Stamford Bridge like hawks to make sure banned Juve coach Antonio Conte does not try to beat his rap and phone his pals in the dugout.
Conte is serving a 10-month ban for keeping quiet over match-fixing when boss of Siena and is banished to the stands.
A UEFA spokesman said: “The ban does extend to UEFA competitions.
“Conte isn’t allowed to have any contact with the players during the game or at half time.”
