Gostkowski Says His Rehab Is Going Well

Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski on Thursday gave a positive report on his rehab from a torn right quad that sidelined him for half of the 2010 season according to Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston. “Each week is better and better and better,” Gostkowski, who kicks with his right leg, said at the team’s “Community MVP” event at Gillette Stadium.

“It’s very encouraging and I feel very happy with where I’m at right now. I’m just going to work hard to be ready by camp.” Gostkowski was asked if he’s limited in range and distance, in terms of what he should be doing. “I’m kicking just as well as I would any other year, at this time of the year. I feel very good about it,” he said. “It’s been a slow progression, like a pitcher playing toss, then playing long toss, then throwing off the mound. It’s been a progression over the last couple months, little baby steps, and now the fear of re-injuring, and the fear of hurting myself and it hurting while I do it is completely out the window. It’s just encouraging to feel better each week.”
