Julian Edelman missed the 2017 season due to his torn ACL, and now he’s back on the field this the training camp.
The New England Patriots will have to play the first four games without Julian Edelman, and the wide out promised to give his best once he comes back.
Edelman is candid about his recovery. Although his knee held out well through the first week of the training camp, Edelman knows that he doesn’t have his “football legs” yet.
“It’s been a grind. Honestly just trying to get your legs to – you’re compounding day after day after day after day. When you’re working in the offseason, you may put three together – I think we’re on what, eight today? So you’re always trying to go out and get better and I have to do a lot better,” he said.
“I feel like I got to get my legs under me a lot more. I don’t have my camp legs, I don’t have football legs and it’s evident out there. You get tired, you create bad habits, you don’t run your routes right and you get yelled at in meetings for it. I’m expecting to do that because I got to pick it up. I wasn’t as good as I want to be today and feeling that’s because I’m not in the best shape right now,” Edelman added.
The wide out was injured during the Patriots’ preseason contest with the Lions. There’re no setbacks to his knee, and we do hope that his condition will keep getting better. He will have to work really hard to come back to his original position. He was a dominate go-to option in the most high-flying offenses after all. Every NFL fan knows this.
Keep doing your thing, Julian Edelman, and get better soon.
