Although it’s June the Patriots have started working and getting ready for the approaching season. Devin McCourty is in attendance for Patriots’ OTAs, but hasn’t been participating.
McCourty underwent shoulder surgery over the offseason and has been watching his teammates from the sidelines.
McCourty joined 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Toucher & Rich to discuss where he’s at in his rehab from shoulder surgery, his opinion of guys who choose not to show up at OTAs and the number of guys from Rutgers on this Patriots team.
Many athletes say that it’s hard to watch their team play or practice while they themselves are injured because they strive to be out there with everyone else. How has McCourty been handling sitting on the sidelines at OTAs as he rehabs from offseason shoulder surgery?
What’s the status of his rehab and when does he think he’ll be able to return to action?
Brandon Spikes is MIA at Patriots OTAs and the guys wonder what McCourty thinks about players who don’t show up to work with the team during this period.
Plus, the guys discussed Devin and Jason McCourty’s bet to help raise money for the Tackle Sickle Cell 5K walk/run at Liberty State Park in Jersey City. Whichever twin finishes second in fundraising has to fly to the other brother’s NFL city and make a public appearance as that team’s mascot. Click here for more info on the event and to donate.
