Baltimore Ravens free safety Terrence Brooks is running after suffering ACL and MCL tears in his right knee in December, the Baltimore Sun reports.
“Terrence Brooks is doing really well,” coach Jim Harbaugh said. “No predictions right now, but he looks good. He has worked hard.”
Brooks said he’s made steady progress in his rehabilitation.
“It’s going really good,” Brooks said. “To be honest, we’re probably a little bit ahead of schedule. I haven’t had a break since I’ve been hurt. It’s been straight rehab since Dr. Andrews did the surgery. It’s feeling pretty strong.”
And while he’s expected to open the season on the PUP list, he could make his return this season, but will be careful about rushing to avoid a setback.
“We’re just hoping for the best, trying to get back as soon as possible,” Brooks said. “We’re taking precautious. We definitely don’t want to rush back too fast. If you do get cleared, playing this year is definitely a goal. You don’t want to rush it. For the most part, you have to be cautious and take it easy. After we get off of the PUP list, we’ll see where we’re at. I definitely want to get back into it, but we’re taking our time. I have high hopes of being ready.”
