Chase Minnifield: Dad, Car and Recovery

Despite having his first professional season cut short by a torn ACL, Chase Minnified has impressed at training camp so far.

The fact that an undrafted player who suffered a serious, debilitating injury is still competing for a roster spot one year later speaks volumes about his talent.

His rehabilitation schedule was simple. Just go get Dad, find his car and go to the nearest hill. He’ll be at the top waiting for you.

Injuries obviously affect a player’s physical performance, but it can take a toll on their mental state as well. When returning to the field, they tend to favor the recovering body part, fearing that any slightest movement that used to be routine could now have a problematic side effect.

When asked if he still thinks about the injury, Minnifield said he couldn’t with such a strenuous workout routine.

“I don’t even think about it. As hard as I’ve worked from pushing cars and running hills, anything like that, if I can do that, I can do this.”

The first thing I pictured is Minnifield, at 185 pounds, pushing a school bus up a Mount Everest sized mound. Fortunately, Chase brought it back down to earth a little and said that it was simply his dad’s old school Mercedes (and tactics) that generated such a peculiar regimen.

Okay so maybe you didn’t hulk up right away Chase, but did you upgrade to say a truck when you started to regain some of your strength?

“No. It’s not like it’s going to get easy one day and the next day it’s hard. You just have to do repetitions.”

So the next time you get a flat during rush hour, just send a tweet Chase’s way.
