However, an AFP reporter saw the forward take part in his first training session since the injury, going through a range of warm-up exercises with his teammates.
"There's a good degree of progress but no definitive decision on whether he takes part, as we are following his case day by day," he told reporters.
But such has been his form for Liverpool, with 44 goals in all competitions this season, that he was included in the Egypt squad simply on the off-chance he could play.
On May 30, Egypt officials said Salah would be out for "not more" than three weeks, which would rule him out of the Uruguay match but put him in the frame for Russia on June 19 and Saudi Arabia on June 25.
Team doctor Mohamed Abou al-Ela said over the weekend that Salah would not play "unless he has totally recovered".
"I'm excited. God willing I'm well-prepared and things are going well and my morale is high," he told AFP on Sunday.
"I like the best players to play, I train with the best and I want the best players to play," he said.
