Andy Pettitte was back in the Yankees clubhouse Tuesday.

There are only seven weeks left in the regular season. Can Pettitte recover from the broken leg he suffered in June and pitch for the Yankees again this season?

He was optimistic, but took some caution in his tone.

“I know now that if I have another setback that we’ve got serious problems and my season’s probably over,” he said. “Now we’re probably going to be overcautious and try to figure out what we can do just to make sure I’m back and what I need to get ready.”

Listen as Pettitte spoke to reporters Tuesday afternoon, 48 days after suffering the freak injury:
