Report: Sony Michel “progressing quickly” after knee scope

Patriots running back Sony Michel ended the offseason program on the sideline, but it sounds like he should be back up to speed sooner rather than later.

Michel sat out the team’s minicamp after having arthroscopic surgery on his knee. Michael Giardi of NFL Media reports that Michel is “progressing quickly” after the operation.

Giardi adds that Michel has been running “full tilt,” so it seems like a good bet that he’ll be able to participate in practices once training camp gets underway next month.

Michel was a first-round pick last year and led the team with 931 rushing yards. He ran for six touchdowns in the regular season and added six more during the team’s postseason march to a Super Bowl title.

  1. Wasn’t worried in the least….. he’ll be a stud again this year as well!!!

  2. Drafted way too high. Could have waited and taken him in the 3rd round or later with his bad knees. Another wasted high draft pick by GM Belichick.

  3. Trainer Alex Guerrero will have him ready for the season, all Sony has to do is consume Supreme Greens and Neuro safe and a return to the Super Bowl is guaranteed

  4. Yup, GM BB is just not good enough. Coach BB should have a word with him. And if CBB hurts GMBB’s feeling, GMBB has all those Lombardi trophies to console himself with.

  5. Georgia running backs get dinged up a lot. Gurley, Chubb, Michel all came into the league with injury history.

    A positive lockerroom contribution and 6 TDs in the playoffs that preceded a SuperBowl win proves that you are not a smart man.

  7. Patriots haven’t had a “high draft pick” in twenty years.The Panthers get one every other year. Yo Yo teams usually aren’t as good as they are.

  8. Hard to believe some of the Boston sports radio clowns literally called him a bust after about week 4 last season. Oh wait, nope. That’s not hard to believe.

    Given as the 31st pick of 2018, Michel’s already been instrumental in an SB win in his first year, what does that say about Panthers’ first overall 2011 pick Cam Newton?? Mega-wasted.

  10. Drafted way too high. Could have waited and taken him in the 3rd round or later with his bad knees. Another wasted high draft pick by GM Belichick.

    Had New England passed on Michel, it would have left Cleveland with an interesting choice at pick 34! Here’s to long healthy careers for three Bulldogs – Michel, Nick Chubb and Isaiah Wynn.

  11. He’s a really good running back. Tough, consistently advances through the contact, and has great vision. Just hope he can stay healthy.
