On 12/20, McIlrath told Paul Doyle of the Courant “Its been really good. The knee feels real good. Obviously I have to get my game back because its been a while, but it’s slowly coming along. The hands are getting better. I feel a lot more comfortable each day.”
He said that he was willing to be patient with his return but expected it to be after Christmas or around New Years.
