Keizo Kawashima started working out at Jingu on Monday after taking 7 days off for rest.  And for the first time since undergoing surgery on his right elbow on March 4th, Kawashima is expected to rejoin the Ichi-gun roster for the start of fall practice on the 20th.

"I'm excited about practicing with everyone again," said Kawashima.  "I don't know if I'll be able to do everything, but I should be able to do most of the basic exercises."  He then added, "First, it's about getting back to being able to play short.  After that, I'll work on wherever they want me to play."
