Falcons Training Camp: Rookie Lamar Holmes Excited After Offseason Foot Injury

Rookie left tackle Lamar Holmes missed offseason workouts witha foot injury, so he was especially excited to finally hit the field when the Falcons opened camp on Thursday.

From the Falcons official website:

"I can't lie; I was excited to get back out there," he said. "Earlier today when we came out here for walkthroughs, I was like a kid running around in the locker rooms. I'm just happy to be back out there."

The third-round pick spent the time recovering by studying the playbook and watching from the sidelines. He did admit it might take a little bit to get back to full speed, but he's confident heading into his first NFL season. From the Falcons site:

"Give me a week or two weeks and before you know it I'll be getting back to myself, running around and doing a little better," he said.
