Garafolo added Atlanta coach Dan Quinn said McGary’s presence was a good sign and that doctors were “pleased” with the offensive tackle’s progress.
McGary underwent a cardiac ablation procedure — a minimally invasive approach that can correct heart rhythm problems — on Wednesday.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport added that it’s going to be a “wait-and-see” in terms of McGary’s return as the team has done research on other athletes with similar ailments and their returns have varied.
During his college days at Washington, McGary had two similar procedures.
