Weir has been sorely missed during his enforced two-match absence, with the Brewers drawing 3-3 at struggling Accrington before being hammered 7-1 by fellow automatic promotion contenders Port Vale.
The midfielder is likely to be restored to the starting line-up by manager Gary Rowett as he looks for his team to return to winning ways following four games without a victory.
With Michael Symes continuing to play despite a groin niggle, Rowett will be hoping for positive news on fellow strikers Calvin Zola and Billy Kee.
Zola is still struggling with a long-standing hamstring and hip problem and has sat out the last three matches, while Kee missed Friday night's thrashing at Vale Park with a hamstring injury sustained at Accrington.
