Patriots | Colvin convinced he can have a career year

Thu, 03 Aug 2006 15:05:45 -0700

Dave D'Onofrio, of the Concord Monitor, reports New England Patriots LB Rosevelt Colvin is convinced he can have a career year in 2006. Nearly three years removed from a hip injury that had some wondering if he'd play (or even walk) again, Colvin is aiming to reassert himself as one of the NFL's premier pass-rushing linebackers. "I feel like I'm moving faster than I moved before," Colvin said. "I feel comfortable, and I'm trying to work and do some things better than I've done in the past. I definitely want to beat 10 (sacks). I've never gotten over 10 1/2. Last year I think I had six or seven, and you always want to continue on the trend of the year prior, if it's a positive year." Head coach Bill Belichick said Colvin's hip is no longer at all a concern to the team. Once his football career is finished he hopes the lingering discomfort disappears into a distant memory, but neither he nor his coach has any plans of that day arriving any time soon.

Patriots | Colvin Looks Healthy

Fri, 05 Aug 2005 18:58:05 -0700

Michael Felger, of the Boston Herald, reports New England Patriots LB Rosevelt Colvin has taken virtually every first-team rep since training camp started. Colvin looks to be very close to 100 percent this season as he was still recovering from a hip injury received two years ago. With LB Mike Vrabel taking reps at inside linebacker, Colvin looks to be a big factor this season on the outside. "I don't have to push to get out of bed in the morning anymore," Colvin said. "I don't have to get in the ice tub after every practice. I'm not limping in-between every rep, or tying to push through every rep. I can focus on football, and I think that's beneficial to me and the defense. Because now you don't have a guy that's out there not full-speed.''

Patriots | Colvin Limited in Practice

Mon, 09 Aug 2004 09:50:25 -0700

Updating a previous report, Michael Felger, of the Boston Herald, reports New England Patriots LB Rosevelt Colvin (hip) had his football pads on during the Sunday, Aug. 8, workout his first practice since he broke his hip last season. Colvin did not do any hitting, and was on the sidelines for an entire situational scrimmage between the offense and defense. It's unlikely Colvin will see much action in the preseason opener against the Philadelphia Eagles on Friday, Aug. 13. "We're almost a year from the surgery, and I don't know if I'm back to normal or not," Colvin said. "I have to get out there in live practice and live game situations and see if my production level is the same as before." Colvin admitted he's not 100 percent and that he will be conscious of the injury when he's on the field.
