Minneapolis, MN - Joining the Paul Allen Show on KFAN 100.3FM Friday morning, Minnesota Vikings All-Pro center John Sullivan set the record straight regarding recent reports that say he will be 100% ready to go when Training Camp begins on July 25th.
"It's hard to answer those questions," Sullivan told KFAN after being asked if he will be ready to roll for Training Camp. "We're getting better each and every week, each and every day."
Sullivan, who underwent microfracture surgery on his left knee in early February, has been in attendance at all of the Vikings Organized Team Activities this month but has been on the sidelines and behind the scenes rehabbing with head trainer Eric Sugarman
"Being on the sidelines during OTAs sucks," Sullivan said. "It's not fun, you're rehabbing the entire time. The last place you want to be is on the sidelines with Eric Sugarman! He's incredibly good at his job but they beat you up on the sidelines the entire time. They're making sure you're working hard."
Typically, recovery from this type of surgery is ball parked between three to almost six months, a timetable that should put Sullivan right in range to take the field in Mankato for training camp.
Still, Sullivan is hesitant to commit to any timetable no matter how short or long it may be.
"I just don't want to put a time frame on it," Sullivan continued. "We're taking it one day at a time. I promise, I am doing absolutely everything I can to be ready for that [week one] game in Detroit."
