Rehabbing Malik Hooker shows off moves in video

The Indianapolis Colts could be on track to have a key member on defense back on the field.Safety Malik Hooker, who suffered a season-ending knee injury against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 7 of the 2017 season, took to Twitter on Tuesday afternoon and posted a four-second video of himself working out.As Hooker pointed out in the tweet, the occasion marked his first day on the field at the Colts’ training facility in cleats.While Hooker said he was “a little rusty,” the second-year pro seemed optimistic with the rehabilitation process. In the short video clip, Hooker is observed backpedaling for five yards, and then displays lateral movement as he plants and sprints to his left.The Colts used a first-round pick (15th overall) on Hooker in 2017, and he enjoyed a good start to his professional career before tearing the ACL and MCL in his right knee.He finished the season appearing in seven games with six starts, totaling 22 tackles, three interceptions and four passes defensed.
