Matt LaFleur back to coaching, after surgery on torn Achilles

Matt LaFleur was back to coaching Tuesday, two days removed from surgery on his torn Achilles.

And while he took a golf cart around the field and was leaning against a scooter with his left leg elevated while he talked to reporters, he said he hopes everything will be normal by the time the regular season starts.

“As long as I handle my business and follow doctors orders, I don’t anticipate having any limitations come Week One,” he said, via Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

For the rookie head coach, being limited in any way now seems difficult. He threw out the first pitch at a charity softball game in a walking boot, using his injury (from a basketball game) as a motivational message.

He has to stay off his foot now for four weeks, which he hopes means will allow him to be back in the boot and active when the Packers start training camp.

    “Matt LaFleur was back to massaging Aaron’s ego, two days removed from surgery on his torn Achilles.”

    Fixed it for you.

  2. I won’t tell you who the woman in red is who it looks like Jason Wilde is trying to get as close as possible to.

    I think LaFleur should be applauded for his always positive approach. It takes a strong man to always take a positive approach to life no matter what.

    Really? The Barneys have shown me plenty of examples that whining and crying serves you better.

    Whether it’s the constant bellyaching about picks and offensive holding on every single Packer snap, it’s the tinfoil hat belief that the NFL has some giant conspiracy to elevate the NFL’s smallest television market, while intentionally holding their team back for 58 straight years. skoLOL!

    But, I agree with you free, I’d rather see someone embracing a strong, positive attitude, and take full ownership of one’s individual problems.
    It’s the first step in someone’s personal overall success.

    Right on!

    Negativity will always fail! I teach my kids to always have a positive outlook and always surround themselves with positive people who make them better. If you are always taking a positive approach to life and only surrounding yourself with positive people you will always succeed. Always cut negative people out of your life immediately.

    These are great lessons in life and in sports.

    Let’s see how positive he is around November.

  6. Nice example and sets the tone for “Do as I say, Not what I do”. if he were a player they would have cut him to pay no roster bonuses.
    Keep it classy GB:)

  7. Why, is he suddenly the coach of the purple chokers? Everyone knows their season ends in November!! Have fun losing again and trying to tell us all how great the barneys are. Real nfl fans know they should change their skol chant to choke!choke!choke!
