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.

Michel's knee scope was considered precautionary. The 2018 first-round pick out of Georgia (No. 31 overall) missed most of training camp last year with a knee injury and was sidelined for three games in 2018 due to knee ailments.
