The London Wasps speedster is nearing a return but with a World Cup looming on the horizon in 2015, the 22-year-old will not be rushing anything.
"Hopefully I can make it back for a few games this season. I'm on target with my rehab and I want to get back this season with the England tour coming up," he said.
"There's no rush for me to get back, but I'm working hard. No one can say precisely when I'll be ready.
"There won't be any risks taken but ultimately I want to be in that World Cup squad. That's the bigger picture.
"Although New Zealand is a massive tour and no one wants to miss it, but if it could jeopardise my future then then I will miss it."
