As of February (simpler times), Kansas City Chiefs safety Juan Thornhill was expected to be ready for training camp. The Chiefs’ second-year player — who logged 16 starts for the team as a rookie — tore his ACL in the final regular-season game against the Los Angeles Chargers. Thornhill tweeted from his official account on Monday.

The tweet likely marks the first time Thornhill is running on flat ground. Though it is unclear how being out of the facility while the team undergoes its “virtual offseason” might impact his return, the note is a good sign he is progressing.
Thornhill tweeted again later in the evening.

Thornhill registered 58 tackles (42 solo), five passes defensed, three interceptions and one touchdown as a rookie with the Chiefs in 2019.
