Packers CB Kevin King 'sticking to plan' in recovery from shoulder surgery
GREEN BAY - Asked Tuesday whether he has any long-term concerns with his surgically repaired left shoulder, Green Bay Packers cornerback Kevin King responded with a rhetorical question.
“You know where I got my surgery done?” King said at his Lambeau Field locker. “The best in the world. Pensacola, Florida. Dr. Andrews. The best in the world, man.”
So, clearly, the Packers' second-year corner has full faith in Dr. James Andrews, the world-renowned orthopedic surgeon. King is hoping his second surgery to repair the labrum in his left shoulder will be the last.
King said most of his first full offseason in the NFL has been spent rehabbing his shoulder. His work paid off this week when King was able to participate in organized team activities. He didn’t take team reps Tuesday, and doesn’t know whether he’ll be able to before training camp opens in July.
But King went through individual drills and should have minimal limitations – if any – when camp begins.
“Just taking it slow,” said King, the Packers' top 2017 draft pick. “Sticking to the plan.”
