Rabbitohs coach Anthony Seibold has announced Greg Inglis will return to full-time training next Monday and be fit and ready for the Charity Shield match against the Dragons on February 24 next year.
"November is rehab running month for him. December will see him join the conditioning drills and do some other light skills," Seibold told NRL.com.
"January he'll come back after the Christmas break and, all going well, he'll be in the main group and we'll start merging him with more and more contact.
"Talking to Greg his aim is to play half-a-game in the Charity Shield match so that's our target. Obviously with any target you can get some hurdles along the way, but that's our target. And everything in the rehab progress so far suggests that's realistic."
Inglis tore his Anterior Cruciate Ligament in round one of the 2017 season.
