Malcolm Mitchell: “We’ll see” if I’m ready for camp

Patriots wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell missed all of last season with a knee problem and his work during the offseason program was limited to conditioning, so his status for training camp was left an open question when that program came to an end earlier this month.

That remains the case after Mitchell briefly addressed his condition during an appearance to promote literacy to young football players this weekend. Mitchell said “I’m good” when asked about his knee, but offered no certainty in response to a question about being ready for training camp.

We’ll see,” Mitchell said, via the Boston Herald.

Mitchell didn’t elaborate about his condition, so we’ll likely have to wait a few weeks to see if Mitchell is ready to take on a fuller workload. With Julian Edelman facing a four-game suspension, that would be a welcome development for the receiving corps in New England.

    The Patriots receiving corp is a group of question marks. Who knows who’ll be starting on opening day?

  2. He was an exciting player in his rookie season. Not the biggest numbers but made a lot of great, individual plays and showed potential to grow into a much better receiver.

    Would be a shame if he can’t make it back on the field.

  3. Big pats fan but he is so fragile. Was in college as well. Great guy hope the best for him but I don’t see him making the roster

  4. I think calling someone “fragile” because of a lingering knee issue stemming from college is a reach. The guy came back from a gnarly elbow injury in the preseason (google it if you want to see your lunch come back up) and finished the season with said lingering knee issue. Fragility is thrown around too much in a sport that demands a lot of the human body.

  5. I hope he is but the Pats still have Hogan, Gronk, and a couple of decent backs in Burkhead and White who can also catch passes out of the backfield. They’re still in decent shape on offense it’s the defense I’m worried about.

    They have a logjam at the position that is going to force some cuts. They can hold off on some of those cuts if some of the other players are not available to start the season.

  7. What a lot of potential this young man has and he’s such a wonderful advocate for literacy. I sure hope he can come all the way back from his injury and make the roster.

  8. If he’s truly not a 100% good to go @ The start of training camp I believe the Pats should put him IR to start the season or flat out release him with an injury settlement…
    I have/had high hopes for the young man, and if he can’t be on the field contributing, none of that matters….. Pats can only carry 53…. They need to be able to contribute!!!
    Go Pats!!!

    Not me. The healthy, #1 rated D in 2016 won a SB. They were great. Gotta be healthy to win SBs. And, it’s helpful when the commissioner isn’t stealing your picks who would be playing in those SBs, while handing the opponent 14 free points.

    With guys coming back healthy, the red-shirted 2017 draft class, Wise and Butler’s strong rookie season, the Shelton, McCourty and Clayborn additions, me likey. A lot.

    Watch the NFL much?
