Manchester United have confirmed Carlos Tevez only suffered heavy bruising to his ankle in the New Year's Day win over Birmingham City.
Tevez was substituted with 20 minutes left of the game, having earlier scored the only goal at Old Trafford.
He was carried down the touchline at the final whistle, with United boss Sir Alex Ferguson waiting on a scan to determine the extent of the damage.
Tests have shown there are no broken bones, although the Argentine striker is still likely to miss Saturday's FA Cup tie with Aston Villa.
A club spokesperson told United's official website: "Nothing is broken, Carlos Tevez has just got a badly bruised right ankle."
Meanwhile, Park Ji-sung has expressed his happiness at being back in the team after starting against Birmingham.
It was the South Korean's first start since suffering a knee injury against Blackburn at the end of March last year and he was also pleased with the reaction of United's supporters.
"It is nice to be back," he told MUTV. "I played for 75 minutes, so that will give me confidence.
"My knee feels 100 per cent and after the game I felt no reaction, so I am not afraid of getting injured again.
"I am very impressed with the reception I got from the fans. I have been away from the pitch for nine months, so for them to remember me is fantastic."
