Bryson missed the FA Cup defeat to Chelsea last weekend with a groin injury but the 11-goal midfielder is expected to be fit for the clash against the Rams' East Midlands rivals on Friday night.
Patrick Bamford joined Steve McClaren's men on Monday and the on-loan Chelsea striker will hope to make his debut at the King Power Stadium. Fellow forward Johnny Russell underwent surgery to repair a fractured cheekbone last week and is on course to return to action by the end of January.
Skipper Richard Keogh has missed the last four matches with a knee ligament injury and will remain unavailable so Michael Keane, who had a successful loan spell last season with Leicester, will keep his place in central defence and face his former club.
