It was initially feared that the Irish marksman would be out of action for eight weeks after sustaining a knee injury, although it has since emerged that the damage is not as serious as was first thought.
It is now thought that Foran could return to action within a fortnight after a scan revealed that ligaments were not as badly damaged as the initial prognosis indicated.
Meanwhile, former Plymouth Argyle striker Adrian Littlejohn has joined The Cumbrians for a trial spell after failing to hold down a permanent deal with Sheffield United.
Littlejohn was hoping to earn a permanent deal with The Blades after joining them as cover following a spate of injuries, but it would now seem that his future lies at Brunton Park.
