New York Giants Mini-Camp 2012: TE Travis Beckum Plans To Run For First Time Since Torn ACL

New York Giants tight end Travis Beckum said he plans to run Tuesday at the team's mini-camp as he continues to recover from a torn ACL suffered in the Super Bowl, according to Ebenezer Samuel of the New York Daily News.

"If my knee says, 'Travis, relax,' I'm going to back off," he said. "I just had an ACL surgery. I expect pain. But as far as where it's at, if it's more in the front, then I'm going to need to back off a little bit."

This will be the first time Beckum has run since his injury.

"I've done everything except running," he told Samuel. "Been in the pool a lot. I've been sprinting in the pool, making my glutes strong, my hamstrings, my quads. So all that stuff has a factor on how my knees going to hold up."

Beckum and fellow tight end Jake Ballard both tore their ACLs during the Super Bowl, but Beckum's recovery has been much quicker. Ballard was waived by the team on Monday, though his agent believes he will return to the Giants once his knee heals.
