Vince Biegel was an absolute stud when he played for the Wisconsin Badgers from 2013-2016.
The former Badgers’ linebacker racked up 131 tackles (28.5 for loss) while recording 15 sacks over his four-year career. Then, with the first pick in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, his hometown team — the Green Bay Packers — selected him.
In May, the team held its rookie orientation camp, and soon after, Biegel had to have a foot surgery, causing him to be out since then. Specifically, the injury was described as a Jones fracture, which was the exact same injury Biegel sustained as a Badger his senior year.
On Wednesday, though, the former Badger standout was finally able to practice.
Here’s what he posted on Twitter:

After the practice, according to packers.com, Biegel said it felt really good to be back out there.
“It was good to finally be out there, being around with the Packers, flying around with other teammates and most importantly getting my first practice under my belt,” Biegel said. “Obviously, a long way to go. I still have a long way to knock off the rust. But it really did feel good to be out there and have a healthy practice under my belt.”
