Jake Ballard may not be a lock to make the Patriots final roster

It looks like Patriots tight end Jake Ballard still isn’t ready to get on the field since he’s now been placed on the PUP list for the start of training camp.

People seem to not realize how serious microfracture surgery is because of how difficult it is to come back from.

Ballard ended up tearing up his knee back in February 2012 during Super Bowl XLVI and he still isn’t right.

Ben Volin of the Boston Globe doesn’t believe Ballard is a lock to make the Patriots final roster.

Now people might understand why the Giants waived Ballard last season in hopes of placing him on injured reserve.  They knew he wasn’t going to be ready and now he still isn’t.
