Chase Utley is expected to rejoin the lineup Thursday after recovering from a concussion, the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

Utley has been out since last Wednesday after taking a fastball off his helmet while at the plate. He passed his first test on Saturday and did so again on Monday, clearing him to return. Thursday is the beginning of a Phillies homestand, so Utley will not play in the Astros series starting on Monday night. He is batting .262/.344/.461 in 393 plate appearances with 36 extra-base hits. It's his worst season since 2004, the year prior to becoming a full-time player, but is still one of the better second basemen in the game.

Strongly doubt they are rushing him back, they have no reason to. Division all but wrapped up, twenty games to play. Probably want to get him into a game here and there to stay sharp, and with playoff berth in hand, I don't believe they would risk rushing him back and losing him for the post season.

no they are not.  He cleared his concussion test - which matched his spring training baseline.  What else you want him to do?
