Training for a Marathon post-injury

I'm registered for the Chicago Marathon this October (in 11 weeks) . It'll be my first race running this far. I also bruised the hell out of my heel 2 weeks ago. Now that I can run again, how do I adjust my training plan?
I had been training to Hal Higdon's advanced Marathon plan. When I fell and hurt myself, I've taken 2 weeks off from running while it recovers. It appears after a painless mile run today to test it that it's recovered enough to start training again. So while I obviously need to pay attention to my heal as I'm running, what's the best way to get back on track, keeping the healing injury in mind, but also trying to make up for lost time?
