Seahawks defensive tackle Brandon Mebane was in the middle of one of the best seasons of his career when he went down with a torn hamstring that required surgery and forced him to finish the year on injured reserve. He has been rehabbing since then, and while you wouldn’t expect him to say otherwise, he told 710 ESPN Seattle’s “Justin and Gee” on Thursday that his rehab is going according to plan.

“Everything’s going real good. Everything’s going great,” he said, adding that earlier in the morning he had done some pool exercises as part of his rehab. “Everything is feeling real good, real great.”
Mebane’s injury occurred in Seattle’s win over the Giants on Nov. 9, which was early enough that it shouldn’t affect his availability for the start of next season. Mebane said during the Super Bowl that he’ll be ready by training camp but that he’ll “probably” miss or be limited during OTAs and minicamp.
Of course, veteran players rehabbing from injuries usually aren’t in a hurry to return for those portions of the offseason. Mebane pointed to that when he said, “There’s really no rush to get back and do those things. That’s all just more healing time.”
