Addison, 27, was facing a fitness battle for the Twickenham encounter on Sunday after picking up a calf injury.
As expected back row Caelan Doris returns after missing the win over Wales because of concussion sustained in the opener against Scotland.

Addison was named in Ireland's squad for a training camp in Cork last week but was unable to attend because of the injury.
The versatile back, who is usually in the centre, has won four Ireland caps but was not in the match-day squad for the victories over Scotland and Wales.
Ireland centre Garry Ringrose continues his recovery from finger surgery and is expected to be sidelined at least until the penultimate contest against Italy.
Ireland coach Andy Farrell will name his match-day squad for the match against the World Cup finalists on Wednesday.
England lie fourth in the standings and four points behind Ireland as the Six Nations returns following a two-week break.
