Packers LB Hawk Coming Back Well After Wrist Surgery

Packers linebacker A.J. Hawk is keeping busy during the NFL labor dispute. His wrist, which required surgery to repair ligament damage that included inserting pins and wearing a cast for a few months, is “perfectly fine for training camp,” he told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The surgery took place right after Super Bowl XLV, and he now wears a brace while working out six days a week.

“I played the whole year with it, so it’s fine; it will be all right,” he said. The defending Super Bowl champions might hold players-only practices, but are working out independently for now, Hawk said. “The most the defense can do when we get together is seven-on-seven,” he said. “I can understand quarterbacks throwing to receivers and stuff like that. I think it’s more of a camaraderie thing.”
