Jorvorskie Lane makes progress in rehab from broken leg

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - NFL fullback Jorvorskie Lane returned back to his Lufkin hometown Friday and held his second annual football camp.

While coaching the children at Lufkin High School, Lane was only wearing a sleeve on the right leg he broke at the end of the regular season. Lane broke his tibia and fibula in January.

Lane said he is running and is expecting to be back by mid-October.

As a free agent, he said the goal for this year is to get back in shape.

"Right before I got hurt, I was in the best shape of my life. I'd just like to get back to where I was. Once I get back to where I was, hopefully I'll go to a Pro Bowl," said Lane.

This is now the second straight season Lane is having to comeback from a leg break.

"Once I broke my leg I immediately went to the time recovery. The time recovery is seven months. I looked at it as I have seven months to get right and sharpen my tools mentally," said Lane "It's just one of those things. I've been through it. It's nothing small. I just have to listen to my body, trust God and go to work."
