Brown on track with recovery - Price
Warrington Wolves half-back Kevin Brown could be back in action before the end of the season, according to head coach Steve Price.
The 34-year-old ruptured his Achilles tendon during a training session six days before the start of the Super League campaign.
Initially, Warrington feared they may be without Brown for the entire season but his progress over recent weeks suggests he may return early.
Price admits it's difficult to put a timeframe on a possible return date but is optimistic of seeing the England international back on the field this term.
"Kev's the ultimate professional and he's leaving no stone unturned in his recovery," Price said.
"He's doing really well with his training - he's where he needs to be with his rehab and running. It's little steps but we're all really happy for him.
"It's a bit early to say whether he'll be back before the end of the year, but we'd like to think he will be.
"We just don't know with these kind of injuries until you get over that final hurdle.
"We'd love to have him back but we'll have to see how things progress over the next couple of months."
