New Orleans Saints RB Chris Ivory Recovery But Slow
Written by 

Ed StatonSaints mending running back Chris Ivory hopes to start running in a month.

He said he was walking on his own following Lisfranc surgery after the season.


The procedure, which connects a small joint in the center of the foot, was performed in January by Dr. Robert Anderson, the specialist in Charlotte.

Ivory's injury may not be easy for Ivory to overcome before training camp. A success story as an undrafted rookie out of tiny Tiffin, Ivory's long injury history dates back to his first college stop at Washington State.

"They went in and put a screw through one of my bones, and, I believe they connected it with my next toe," said Ivory. "That's supposed to help it align, to line the bones and the ligaments back up, and at my last checkup everything was aligned perfectly.

"Right now I'm still rehabbing, and it's gotten a lot better. I'm to the point now where I can a little more pressure on it, but that pressure is still -- I'm hesitant to put a lot on it, to where it's like I'm walking normal. I still have a little ways to go."

Ivory played in 12 games last season, but was inactive for four and fought a variety of injuries during the season.

He still rushed for a team-leading 716 yards, but was placed on injured reserve in January after suffering the foot injury against Tampa Bay in Week 17.

The Saints went though nine running backs last season.
