New England Patriot beloved defensive tackle Vince Wilfork just had surgery earlier Tuesday to repair a torn Achilles he suffered during Sunday’s game, and Mrs. Wilfork made sure to update us on Twitter of the successful surgery. It’s comforting to know that Wilfork is on the right path to a full recovery, and it’s even more comforting to know that he’s aware PatsNation wish him well.
Wilfork shared his thoughts on Twitter thanking everyone for the support and encouragement, and he certainly gives us assurance by expressing his confidence in the team and his teammates.
I just want to thank everyone for your support and encouragement. Bianca is making sure I see all of the comments I wish I could respond to everyone. But please know your words are heard. One thing I know is I signed up to play football I don’t regret anything that has happened and there is no need to feel sorry about it. I’ve been blessed to only have had one surgery prior to today and that was in high school … I know what signing up to play football means and I know the rewards and the risks. This is my job and I will switch positions for now and play the role of patient but that is only temporary. I have so much confidence in our team and know that they will do great and I will be right besides them maybe not in uniform but in all other ways. Thanks again.”
We wish you a speedy recovery, Vince!
