The duo have missed the Rams' last two matches after sustaining injuries during the 1-0 home defeat to Crystal Palace at the start of the month.
Ward, who despite an injury-hit campaign has scored 11 goals this season, suffered a spasm in his hamstring while Bryson's problem was with a groin.
Both players have made progress this week and have been pencilled in for a return to full training on Friday.
Teenage midfielder Will Hughes (groin), right-back John Brayford (hamstring) and versatile defender James O'Connor (knee) are still not ready to return, although O'Connor is due to resume full training next week.
