Minnesota Vikings right guard Anthony Herrera says he's on the mend following surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee that ended his 2010 season.
"I'm about 90 percent healed," Herrera told The News-Press on Sunday at the youth football camp he hosted in Naples, Fla. "I've just been hanging out with the family and trying to get back in shape. When (the season) comes, I want to hit the ground rolling."
The seven-year veteran also underwent surgery to repair a triceps muscle this offseason and has spent his summer rehabilitating in Minneapolis.
"Once July hits, you start getting a certain feel that you need to get back to work," Herrera told the newspaper. "I am very excited. By the time the season is over, you need a break. ... But I'd say that everybody is ready to get back to work."
