Normally, Dave “I love to spit” Spadaro’s in-studio interviews on PI.com are relatively uneventful and of the powder puff variety, but the one he did with recovering ACL patient Cornelius Ingram this past Saturday was pretty good.
Ingram spoke openly about his rehab and what he still needs to do before returning to the field. Evidently he’s been running full speed for about a month and says his knee feels much stronger than it did after his first surgery. It could all be player speak, but he sounded genuine to me.
He also revealed that he is using yoga to help improve his flexibility, strength and mental focus. Lots of pro athletes include yoga as part of their workout regimen, but a 6’4″ 245 lb man cut from granite doing a “bound lotus” pose must be quite a sight to behold. Hey, whatever helps the big man get healthy is okay with me.
