Plymouth Argyle midfielder Paul Wotton played for 80 minutes in his first game since since breaking his ribs on the opening day of the season.
The 36-year-old was involved in Argyle's 2-0 win in a friendly against Torquay United on Tuesday, before being replaced towards the end of the game.
Wotton broke his ribs in a collision with goalkeeper Luke McCormick in the
1-0 defeat by Southend on 3 August.
The centre-back has played more than 400 games for Argyle in two spells.
Wotton is combining his playing role with taking on some responsibility for coaching the club's youngsters this season.
