Patriots WR Tyquan Thornton reflects on NFL debut after speedy recovery – Boston Herald

[ad_1]

FOXBORO — Patriots rookie wideout Tyquan Thornton is the fastest player on the roster. That goes for running speed and recovery time.

Thornton returned to the field Sunday less than two months after breaking his collarbone in an August preseason game. He caught two passes for seven yards, both second-most among wide receivers. When Lions defensive end Aidan Hutchinson slung him down at the end of his first catch, a 2-yard screen, it marked the first time Thornton had been hit since the injury.

But, he got up quickly.

“It was definitely like an ‘I’m cool’ moment,” Thornton said. “The first time really getting brought down to the ground since the injury, so it was kind of motivating.”
