2) Rehab is going well

Rehab can often be a lonely experience for professional athletes, as they fight to get back to a point where they can train with their teammates. In this respect, Bradley admits his recovery process hasn’t actually been that much different from what it would usually be.

The 32-year-old had surgery on his ankle on Jan. 21. In the three months since, his focus has been on rehabbing and pushing himself every day to get a step closer to returning to action.

Despite all this, the one big difference for Bradley is when he actually goes to the BMO Training Ground. As per TSN, he said:

"“The training facility is shut down for just about everybody. (However), because I have a longer-term injury, there’s a few hours a day where myself and one physio are able to pop into the training ground and get the work and the rehab done that I need. “It’s certainly eerie there. It’s a big building, a huge facility and literally there’s (just) two of us there.”"

Regardless, the main thing is that Bradley’s rehab has gone extremely well. He’s as far along as he can be under the circumstances and is ready to start training with his teammates again, whenever that may be.
