New England Patriots defensive end Rob Ninkovich tore his tricep during the team's August 9th practice. Now five days later, Ninkovich returns to practice. He is not fully ready nor 100%, but it is incredible to see the toughness displayed just by getting out there and doing what he can. It is unclear when he will be game ready, but many other guys in the league wouldn't even be practicing five days after a tricep injury.
This just shows how much of an absolute savage this guy is. Sure, it is not the worst injury that any of us have ever heard of. However, it has only been FIVE DAYS and he is already going through the motions. Guys sit out these preseason camp practices due to soreness and even softer injuries. This MAN has a torn muscle (a crucial muscle to add in) and is out there practicing.
Yes, it is in a limited fashion, but none the less he is trying to get back. Everyone knows that Rob Ninkovich is tough as nails, but these sort of situations really just further prove the thoughts.
Robert Michael Ninkovich, you are a man amongst boys...
