Sony Michel, who underwent arthroscopic knee surgery this offseason, will open training camp on the active/physically unable to perform list, according to a source.

The New England Patriots' first practice of training camp is scheduled for Thursday.

It's one step closer to the goal. The resilience, determination and mental fortitude of this man is unmatched."

Jimmy Garoppolo Will Be Ready For Training Camp

Jul 10, 2019 8:25 AM

Jimmy Garoppolo feels good and will be ready for training camp with the San Francisco 49ers.

"I really do," the quarterback said. "The rehab process has gone really well. Knock on wood. We haven't had any setbacks. OTAs went about as well as I could have hoped for and now for training camp hopefully we'll be full go with team drills and all that stuff. We're moving in the right direction. We've just got to keep going day by day and keep stacking them together. It's a long process, but we've come this far, so why stop now, right?"

Garoppolo does not expect to start on the physically unable to perform list, planning to be full go on Day One.

"I'm sure hoping so," he said. "The training staff, the coaches, we've kind of put together a plan and everything like that. We'll kind of assess the situation as we get closer to it."

Garoppolo tore his left anterior cruciate ligament on Sept. 23, 2018.
