Report: Sony Michel ‘running full tilt’ after knee procedure
New England Patriots running back Sony Michel underwent a knee procedure recently on the same knee that he injured in college at Georgia, but all signs continue to point to him being fully healthy by the start of the season.
Michael Giardi of NFL Network reports that Michel is making good progress since he had a knee scope earlier this offseason, and he has been able to run “full tilt.”
Multiple sources say that Sony Michel is progressing quickly since his most recent arthroscopic knee surgery and has been running full tilt. The 2nd year RB has also been spending considerable time at @TB12sports like so many before – and after – have/will. #Patriots

Michel missed three games last year during the regular season, but he was outstanding during the playoffs. He rushed for over 300 yards and scored six touchdowns in three postseason games and was a huge reason for New England’s success.
Michel suffered another knee injury late last season that looked like it had the potential to be very serious, but that was not the case. Because of his history, the Patriots will likely always play it safe with Michel during the offseason and manage his reps.
