Faulk On The Road To Recovery
"It's getting better each and every day," Faulk told the Boston Globe while visiting heart patients at the Brigham & Women's Hospital in Boston. "[It is] coming along."
Faulk, and Patriots assistant coach Chad O'Shea, made a surprise visit to a number of patents at the hospital. While O'Shea declined comment, Faulk did say that he has yet to make a determination on his future. He is rehabbing his injury in New England while he waits to see what happens with the CBA negotiations. If there's a lockout, Faulk expects to return to Louisiana to complete his recovery.
At 5-foot-9, 205 pounds it has been more advantageous for Faulk to be more of a specialist and third down back during his career. He is the Patriots' all-time leader in all-purpose yards with 12,247 he is also the team's -time leading return specialist, with 5,030 combined return yards (4,098 kick return & 932 punt return).
Faulk's role was taken over by Danny Woodhead – a castoff from the New York Jets who had a career season with the Patriots in 2010. According to the Globe's report, Faulk won't let Woodhead's success determine his future.
Faulk will turn 35 in June. He was originally selected by New England in the second round of the 1999 NFL Draft (46th overall).
