Pat McAfee Recovering From Offseason Knee Surgery

Intro: Earlier this offseason, Pat McAfee had surgery on his left knee. How is the rehab going for McAfee?


INDIANAPOLIS – Pat McAfee had offseason surgery on his left knee, his non-kicking leg, the punter told 1070 The Fan on Monday afternoon.

Appearing on The Ride With JMV, McAfee said that he's about two months into recovery from the offseason procedure.

"They cleaned it up," McAfee said of the knee on his plant leg.

"The first couple weeks of rehab was a little tough, but I'm on the backend of it right now. I'm at like 85-90 percent right now so by the time Training Camp comes around I'll be humming 100 percent."

McAfee is coming off another impressive campaign.

The Colts set a pair of NFL records last season, largely thanks to McAfee.

They allowed 156 kickoff return yards, the fewest ever for an NFL team. Personally, McAfee's 90.5 percent touchback ratio also set a league record.

Looking ahead to 2016, the Colts currently have just two kickers on the roster (McAfee and Adam Vinatieri).

In years past, they have carried an additional kicker with them during Training Camp. It remains to be seen if they will add one this year.

The 2016 season marks Year No. 8 for McAfee, who was a seventh-round draft pick in 2009.

As you would expect, McAfee is eager to get back to the game he kicked off in back as a rookie.

"I'm excited," McAfee said on Monday. "After getting my knee cleaned up a little bit and I couldn't do any physical activity, doing rehab literally every single day for two months, I'm excited just to get 100 percent healthy, then get up (to Anderson) and start banging balls.

"Anytime you get into Training Camp you know you're about to try to attempt a Super Bowl run. That's what we are here for. That's what it's all about. The fans deserve it. I think this year is the year where we got to make a run because last year was quite an underwhelming season."
