Adam McQuaid (lower body) was able to fully participate in Wednesday's practice.

McQuaid also took part in Tuesday's practice, but he had been wearing a no-contact jersey. Now that McQuaid took another step forward on Wednesday, there is a chance that he'll be back on Friday. "I’m pretty pleased with it," McQuaid said following Wednesday's practice. "Sometimes it’s a wait-and-see, next-day type thing. I missed that more physical, compete element. So it was nice to throw that in the mix a little bit. … Today was a good step."
