He was one of nine players released back to their Aviva Premiership clubs on Tuesday evening under the RFU's Elite Player Squad agreement with Premiership Rugby.
The nine individuals in question were:
Anthony Allen (Leicester Tigers), Mike Brown (Harlequins), Phil Dowson (Northampton Saints), Ben Morgan (Gloucester Rugby), Dylan Hartley (Northampton Saints), James Haskell (London Wasps), Courtney Lawes (Northampton Saints), Jordan Turner-Hall (Harlequins), Ben Youngs (Leicester Tigers).
Head Coach Stuart Lancaster explained:
"It has been a busy few days of training as well as injury assessment and in line with the EPS agreement coordinating the release of players, some will return for further treatment from their club and others to get some game time to put a marker down for selection for when we meet again on Sunday after the weekend's games.
"We will not finalise selection for the Fiji game until after training next Tuesday, and so for those going back and playing this is a real opportunity to stake a claim with a really big performance."
