Like Malik Hooker did last week, Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Krishawn Hogan posted a group of videos on Instagram of him running routes and cutting around the practice field following surgery to repair an ACL.
This is from Monday but today makes 7 months since surgery. Been feeling great and putting all my trust into my trainers who are doing a great job. Sometimes I want to push to do more because I feel good and want to get after it, but they been through this with many others guys and know what they are doing. Beyond happy to be running routes again. No they are not perfect, yet. I’m using this time to work on my craft and technique and can’t wait to show it.

As Hogan points out, he is now seven months removed from his surgery, so he appears right on track in his progress. According to Verywell Health, returning from an ACL injury is commonly recommend to take about seven to nine months.
Hogan injured his ACL on a freak play on special teams against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 5, where the ball was lateraled back to him and he was basically immediately twisted down to the turf. He appeared in two games for the Colts last year as a rookie, Weeks 4 and 5.
The most infamous ACL rehab on the Colts right now is that of Hooker. The good news is that, although everybody is different and recovers at different speeds, Hooker suffered his ACL injury just two weeks after Hogan did. Hooker, however, also tore the MCL in his knee.
At this rate, Hogan may be available for training camp in late July. He is currently on the roster bubble but in the mix for a roster spot against the likes of Reece Fountain, Deon Cain, K.J. Brent, Kasen Williams and Steve Ishmael.
