Callahan talked about his return, according to NHL.com:

"It's hard to sit out and watch your team," stated the Rangers captain, who has missed 17 games due to three separate injuries so far this year. "It's been a tough year with the injuries, no question. This happens sometimes. You just have to stay positive, keep working hard. I said it as soon as I hurt my knee, it's just another bump I have to work through to get back as fast as I can."
