Prop Cian Healy is expected to miss the start of the 2014 RBS 6 Nations after undergoing surgery on his injured ankle on Wednesday.
In that review it was discovered that although the 27-year-old Ireland international has made excellent progress in his recovery, some minor issues remain.
As a result, the specialist medical staff treating Ferris are considering several options to ensure that he makes a full and complete return to play.
A decision on a course of action will be made in the coming weeks.
