Murray back for the US Open?

Sorry if there is a thread, I couldn't see one. I thought there would be one by now.

Apparently he is set to play the US Open: https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2017/aug/18/andy-murray-fit-us-open

I'm not sure If it's a good move myself, I would have thought taking the rest of the year off like Djokovic and Wawrinka (and Nishikori?) would have been the best move, to let his body be completely healed. Then again what do I know, I am neither a doctor nor privy to inside information from the Murray camp, they should know best.

If he is fit to play again then I for one am thrilled, I am not expecting him to win it or have a deep run given that he hasn't played since Wimbledon but If he is simply fit and "un-injured" enough to return to the tour again then that is a great victory by itself.

Murray to retake #1 at USO! Imagine the salty tears raining down on TTW.
Would that rank as the most unexpected back to back returns to number 1 ever?

We all thought Nadal was done in 2015/16 and he has returned to number 1, If Murray then retuned to number 1 straight after given his current situation and year then that would be 2 remarkable returns to number 1 back to back.

If he is fit, he could easily reach the SF.
If you offered that to me now I would bite your hand off given that he hasn't made the SF since 2012 and he is in a worse position now than the intervening years, 2014 included.
