Paul Arriola — finally healthy — appears ready to make his return for a struggling D.C. United

In all likelihood, Paul Arriola will be in uniform for D.C. United on Thursday for the first time in more than six months.

Most recently, the winger recovered from a quadriceps injury, which undermined his loan to Swansea City in the English second division, ended his prospects of a permanent move overseas and prompted a premature return to Washington.

After several weeks of rest, rehab and secondary workouts, Arriola returned to full training Monday. Both he and Coach Hernán Losada have been upbeat about his progress, and although the team has not declared him in the game-day mix, Arriola seems almost certain to be on the squad against the Chicago Fire at Audi Field.
