Rooney was injured in training and missed Manchester United's 1-1 draw away to Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League on Wednesday but manager David Moyes expects him to be fit to face Sunderland on Saturday.
"Wayne Rooney will be okay for Saturday," said Moyes.
"He clashed shins with Danny Welbeck (in training). At a push we probably could have risked him but we decided not to."
Hodgson looks set to pair Rooney with Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge who returns to the England set-up after injury.
