The 32-year-old fractured his right arm in the pre-tournament friendly against Japan but following successful surgery the Chelsea forward was able to make an appearance against Portugal in the Elephants' opener wearing a cast.
And now Eriksson hopes to bolster his attacking options from the off by naming the 2009/2010 Premier League top goalscorer in his starting line-up against the highly-fancied Selecao.
"We are not sure yet but we will speak to him (on Sunday). He might be ready," said Eriksson.
"(The cast) was an issue after the game which I did not understand. Fifa have looked at it, the referee looked at it and decided it's not a problem.
"It's not dangerous so I expect the same thing will be done against Brazil. I am very confident that will not be a problem.
"Drogba is a world-famous player, he has scored 30 goals already this season and obviously everybody has respect for him. However, we did play well without him for an hour (against Portugal)."
Eriksson was also very complimentary about their upcoming Group G opponents and their manager Carlos Dunga, whom he coached when manager of Serie A side Fiorentina, and while he would love to win on Sunday, he admitted he would take a draw.
"When Dunga was one of my players he already knew everything there is to know, he was a very intelligent player and he has done excellent work as coach of Brazil," he added.
"They are a classy team, a technically able team and also a team that can bite when it has to bite, It's the modern style of football.
"A draw against Brazil is always a good result, a fantastic result would be to beat them."
