Vince Wilfork Thanks Fans, Encourages Teammates in Emotional Message

Vince Wilfork won’t be suiting up for the Patriots anytime soon, but the big fella sure knows how to make an impact, even while recovering from surgery.

Wilfork, who underwent successful surgery earlier in the day, posted a message on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon, thanking fans for their well-wishes and sending encouragement to his teammates.

Check it out below in a message he called “Just trying to get my thoughts out.”

“I just want to thank everyone for your support and encouragement. Bianca is making sure I see all of the comments I wish I could respond to everyone. But please know your words are heard. One thing I know is I signed up to play football I don’t regret anything that has happened and there is no need to feel sorry about it. I’ve been blessed to only have had one surgery prior to today and that was in [high school]… I know what signing up to play football means and I know the rewards and the risks. This is my job and I will switch positions for now and play the role of patient but that is only temporary. I have so much confidence in our team and know that they will do great and I will be right besides them maybe not in uniform but in all other ways… Thanks again.”
