Patriots rookie Dominique Easley returns to practice following ACL tear
Easley, whom the Patriots selected with the 29th pick in the 2014 draft, tore his right ACL in Sept. 2013. He also tore his left ACL in 2011. In 38 games at Florida, Easley had 5.5 sacks and 72 tackles, including 18 tackles for loss.
Monday was his first 11-on-11 action since last September. He said he felt like a "lost kid" while he recovered from a torn ACL, The Providence Journal's Mark Daniels reports.
“It feels real good,” Easley said. “I haven’t done that since last September so it’s just a work in progress. Trying to get better every day.”
“It’s real important. You got to know what you — you’re supposed to know everything when you get on the field,” Easley said. “Just learning from Vince and Tommy and everybody else. It’s been a challenge, but I’m getting through it.”
