BRAINTREE, Mass. -- Outside linebacker Tully Banta-Cain, who led the Patriots with 10 sacks last season, said his offseason has been affected by shoulder surgery.

"I've been rehabbing," Banta-Cain said at Wes Welker's Football Camp, while pointing to his left shoulder. "I'm getting recovered from that. I'm finally back doing everything with the team, doing all the workouts and [organized team activities]. I'm just getting back to my form."

Asked how concerned he is about the injury allowing him to get back to 100 percent, Banta-Cain said: "I am pretty much there. I'm back. It was a minor surgery. It wasn't anything major. I'm good to go."
