"Again, we are not going to push him until we know he is 100 percent, and
he is working his tail off with Erin (Barill) and Dave (Hammer) and the
trainers. And he is on the side and doing his rehab and going through
position-specific drills with our trainers. So it's just a matter of time
before Pat gets back."
