Fox Sports.com gives Ravens fans some good news, as they report that nose tackle Kelly Gregg is on schedule to be back after surgery last season:
Ravens nose tackle Kelly Gregg appears to be on schedule to return after having knee surgery during last season. Gregg has surprised many coaches in offseason minicamps with his ability to run and finish practices but the real test will come in late July, when Gregg will have to deal with confronting double teams in training camp. “That’s when I’ll find out for sure,” said Gregg, who had micro-surgery on his left knee on Oct. 8 forcing him to miss all of last season.
“There is a point you have to get by where you feel comfortable with the knee. I feel fine with the structure, now it’s just a matter of playing. If it is going to break, then it’s going to break.” Gregg participated in the minicamps, and unlike a year ago, he reported no swelling in his knee after practice. “To have no swelling, that was important,” said Gregg, about to enter his 10th season.
“Right now, I have to say the knee feels great. The only problem is working through hip soreness because I haven’t participated in drills for a while, and even my hand is sore from getting in a stance again. But I’ll continue to work out hard, and I have to report two days before training camp. I’ll be ready to go.”
