Default Re: Connecticut Huskies fan thread

Six months after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during his NCAA tournament debut, Price was cleared by doctors Monday to return to practice. He plans on rejoining his teammates in pickup games Tuesday afternoon at Gampel Pavilion, quietly celebrating the moment that has motivated him throughout the rehabilitation process.

UConn trainer James Doran will continue to monitor Price's progress closely. Price says he knows his legs can still get stronger before practice officially begins on Oct. 17, but he will step onto the floor with complete trust in his surgically repaired knee.

"I'll be ready to go," Price says . "I'll [play] like it never happened. We had six months to rehab. Everything was taken gradually because there was no need to rush. I took the biggest steps during the first month [after surgery]. I attacked it pretty well. Now I can see what a difference that makes. The knee is intact. Now it's all about strengthening it."
