Derry is still recovering from an Achilles problem which forced him to miss the final few months of last season.
Former Crystal Palace ace Derry is back in light training, but Leeds are unlikely to rush him back.
Derry admits he is unlikely to be back in action until October at the earliest.
"I haven't set a date because you become disappointed if you don't make it," Derry told the Yorkshire Evening Post.
"Realistically, I'm looking at October."
