A photo of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., is seen on the video board as the last member of the Republican team announced before the Congressional baseball game, Thursday in Washington.
Medstar Washington Hospital Centre released the update on behalf of the Scalise family.
Rep. Scalise was shot during baseball practice with the GOP team early Wednesday morning after a man approached the field and opened fire.
Hodgkinson, from IL, who had lashed out against U.S. president Donald Trump and other Republicans over social media, was killed by Mr Scalise's security detail and other police officers. Scalise remains in critical condition but his vital signs have stabilized and doctors have lifted sedation enough for him to respond to family members.
In his first public comments since the shooting, Dr. Jack Sava of MedStar Washington Hospital Center said it's a "good possibility" that the Louisiana Republican will be able to return to work in his full capacity. Scalise was on the second base when he was injured by a crazed gunman who was trying to kill Republicans Wednesday.
"A lot of times in politics we have divisions but it shouldn't come to violence", he said.

Trump said the universal support for Scalise and others wounded in the shooting might help heal the country's many political differences. He added that Scalise would be in the hospital "for some time" and would need "a period of healing and rehabilitation" after being discharged.
Scalise was shot in the hip, with the bullet tearing through his pelvis and injuring internal organs. Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation said it was too early to determine a motive in the shooting or whether the attack was an attempted political assassination.
The FBI said it had processed a white conversion van owned by Hodgkinson, which was parked at the YMCA adjacent to where the shooting happened.
Top Republican politician Steve Scalise's condition has been upgraded from critical to serious after he was gunned down at a party baseball practice outside Washington. Richmond, who plays for the Democratic team, said he had visited the hospital multiple times. Capitol Police officer David Bailey and Texas Rep. Roger Williams were also injured during the incident.
Underscoring the day's mood, the Rev. Patrick Conroy, the House chaplain, opened the day by seeking divine forgiveness "when we seem to forget that words matter and can become seeds that will bring bitter harvest".
The game at Nationals Park carried on a century-old bipartisan ritual, this one tinged with worry about Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise and the players' determination to answer the attack by coming together in sport.
