Schraeder (ankle) has been cleared by doctors to resume running, ESPN.com reports.
After tearing a ligament in his right ankle during the Falcons' Super Bowl loss to the Patriots, Schraeder began lifting weights at the team's facilities toward the end of February. The team is set to begin their offseason program on April 17, and the 28-year-old is expected to participate. He appears to be trending toward complete health heading into the training camp.
Schraeder (ankle) will not require ankle surgery, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. "No surgery," he said. "It's not that big of a deal. It just hurts like heck."
Schraeder went down in the Super Bowl with a torn ankle ligament and wasn't expected to need surgery anyway. However, it still isn't clear when he'll be cleared to play again. He has until April 17 before the Falcons' offseason program starts up.
Schraeder sustained the injury in the second quarter but didn't exit the game until the fourth. He's scheduled for further testing Tuesday, although surgery is not expected to be necessary.
