Midfielder Marcos Senna is training full time with the North American Soccer League team and defender Roversio is expected to go at 80 percent with the club on Thursday.
Both players missed the Cosmos's thrilling Open Cup win over New York City FC last week. Senna is recovering from a groin injury suffered during the NASL spring season.
"Marcos is doing very well," Cosmos head coach Giovanni Savarese said during his weekly conference call with the media Tuesday afternoon. "He practiced full today. He looked good. He's now working getting back his fitness, but injury-wise he's free. He is progressing very nicely to be available for the next match."
Roversio also is training with the squad, but not at full strength.
"We expect him to start probably 80 percent on Thursday," Savarese said. "We we feel he has a good chance to make it for the game next week."
