TORONTO -- Although progress is being made, J.A. Happ has yet to throw off the mound after taking a ball to his head against the Rays two weeks ago.

The lefty's issues stem from his sprained right knee as a result of the fall that came afterwards, while his head injuries are nearly fully healed.

Happ hopes to throw off the mound in the next day or so, but doctors won't let him do so without a brace, which is something that he is awaiting the arrival of, according to ESPN's Kelly Naqi.

So far in his rehab, Happ has begun playing catch and according to club representatives there's no timetable for his return to a mound.
