The prospect of Rory McIlroy defending his PGA Championship title has appeared unlikely as the World No. 1 remains sidelined after rupturing the anterior ligament in his left ankle playing soccer with friends in July. Yet for the first time since he suffered the injury -- which kept him from competing in the British Open at St. Andrews -- there's reason to think we could see McIlroy back to play in the year's last major -- emphasis on could.
A report by Reuters, citing an unnamed but "reliable" source, says McIlroy has scheduled a practice round at Whistling Straits for Saturday. McIlroy, who is often active on social media, has not said anything to confirm the report.
