Joining the New York Giants for his second year, Nate Solder spent most of the offseason sidelined by an ankle injury requiring arthroscopic surgery. Another well-compensated left tackle doesn’t expect August to remain on the sidelines.
Solder informed Dan Duggan of The Athletic that his ankle is “moving really nicely” and he expects to be full-going for New York when the training camp kicks off on July 26. “There’s no reason to believe I’m not going to be there for the training camp,” Solder said Saturday.
The left tackle added that he had gone on to do less rehabilitation and more football training.
Solder’s recovery should be welcome news for Big Blue, who was back during offseason workouts without probably beginning the correct tackle Mike Remmers.
In his second go-around with the club, New York requires a more coherent campaign from Solder. Solder was a mere middle-of – the-road blindside blocker for New York after inking a four-year, $62 million agreement with the Giants in 2018, though he improved as the year went on.
The earlier Solder returns to the field to work on the offensive line alongside Will Hernandez and business, the better for Big Blue.
