According to MassLive.com, it looks like Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork is on track to be ready for training camp as he continues to rehab from surgery on his Achilles.
It’s difficult to take much away from organized team activities, especially when trying to evaluate the play in the trenches, since it is a glorified passing camp. But the fact that Wilfork, who is working his way back from an Achilles injury, is this far along should be taken as a positive sign.
We saw the defensive tackle increasingly take on a bigger role in each of the three OTAs that were open to the media, and by the end he was taking part in 11-on-11 drills and was able to plant his leg and take on would-be blockers. It’s too soon to tell if he will be fully healthy in time for training camp, but things appear to be headed in the right direction.
