Sanu had ankle surgery in March and got out of his walking boot in Mid-May to begin rehab.


Mohamed Sanu is coming off offseason ankle surgery, but that should be healed by the time the season rolls around. That ankle injury was a big part of the reason Sanu struggled the second half of 2019, and he struggled to get open or come down with many of his targets. The problem he faces this season is an unproven quarterback in Jarrett Stidham, as well as a completely disrupted spring. It's going to be hard to rebound the way he might with Tom Brady under center, and we're reluctant to hop on board with him until we know what Stidham will be. If you are looking for bench players, somewhere in the WR7 range, Sanu is a good guy to snag as he does have upside and probably won't cost you much. (May 6)

Patriots | Trainer predicts bounce back for Mohamed Sanu (Thu Jun 25, 06:55 PM) - New England Patriots WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) will be 'faster, quicker, leaner, and in better shape' than he was in 2019 after undergoing offseason surgery for a high-ankle injury, according to trainer Hilton Alexander. Alexander said Sanu was a 'shell of himself' after being acquired from the Atlanta Falcons.

Our View: Sanu had ankle surgery in early March and has been on the road to recovery since then. He should be ready to start in Week 1 of the regular season. Julian Edelman, N'Keal Harry and Sanu will be the top three receivers for the Patriots in 2020.
