Bill Belichick pleased with Vince Wilfork recovery

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick has revealed that he is pleased with the recovery of defensive tackle Vince Wilfork.

The 32-year-old sustained an Achilles injury last season which ruled him out for the majority of the 2013 campaign.

Wilfork has looked sharp on his return to the Patriots in their pre-season matches as he looks to find the form that saw him named as an All-Pro in the 2012 season.

Belichick told reporters: "Vince has done everything pretty much since the last week or so of OTAs. He's done everything with the team, no real restrictions. He hasn't really missed any time or anything.

"He's been out there and worked hard. He's getting himself ready for the season as he should be. He's done a solid job of getting himself back and getting ready to play football this year.

"We'll see how it goes going forward. I have no issues with him, I think he's worked very hard coming back from the injury he had last year and be ready to go this season."

The Patriots reportedly cut three defensive players as part of their roster cutdown on Sunday.
