Billy Vunipola is expected to be named in the Saracens starting XV to face Exeter in the Aviva Premiership final at Twickenham on Saturday.
The England No 8 lasted only the first half of the 57-33 semi-final victory over Wasps on Saturday because of a persistent hamstring injury, but director of rugby Mark McCall believes he should be available for the showdown with the Chiefs.
Wales full-back Liam Williams could return for Sarries after suffering a shoulder injury against Gloucester on May 5, but McCall is less certain about his participation.
"Billy did a little bit of training this morning (Tuesday) and will train again on Thursday," McCall said. "We expect him to be available to play. We've just got to be sensible with him. Hopefully he will be OK.
"Liam Williams is touch and go and we'll make a call on him on Thursday. Everyone else who played last weekend we hope to have available."
