LONDON (REUTERS) - Chelsea captain John Terry, who has been out since November with a knee problem, could take his first step towards a first-team comeback by featuring for the English Premier League football club's Under-21 team as an over-age player this week.

"He has been training and we are considering giving him some minutes in an Under-21 game on Thursday," interim manager Rafael Benitez told a press conference on Tuesday.

Benitez also said goalkeeper Petr Cech would be sidelined for Wednesday's League Cup semi-final first leg at home to Premier League rivals Swansea City.

Cech has missed the last two matches with a leg injury.
