Today the New England Revolution announced that defender Kevin Alston has been taken off the disabled list. The six-year pro had been out while treating chronic myelogenous leukemia, rare but treatable form of leukemia.

“We’re very pleased for Kevin that his treatment has progressed and he’s returned to the field,” Revolution general manager Michael Burns said in a statement. “From the outset, Kevin was committed to getting back and has maintained an incredibly positive attitude.”

Alston, who will travel to Denver for Wednesday's match against the Colorado Rapids, returned to training in June. He and the Revolution coaching staff respectfully declined to comment on his progress when he first returned to training.

Originally drafted out of Indiana University as a right back in 2008, Alston started the first four games of the season at left back. He will compete with both Andrew Farrell and Chris Tierney for starting minutes on the back line and also give the Revolution the option of using Tierney on the left flank.
