Zdeno Chara still is a few weeks away from being reevaluated for an MCL injury he suffered Nov. 14 against the Colorado Avalanche, but he’s making sure Bruins fans stay updated throughout his recovery.

The Bruins captain is just one of many Boston players currently injured, including Patrice Bergeron, Charlie McAvoy and Kevan Miller. Chara, as you probably know, takes his health and fitness very seriously and he closely documents it on his personal Instagram account.

Despite doing all he could to keep his 41-year-old body in tip-top shape, Chara still was bitten by the injury bug. However, the veteran blueliner posted a positive update about his recovery Wednesday on Instagram.

“Back in the gym.
Step by step towards the progress.
Focus.Patience.Healing,” the caption read.

While there was no video or details about what Chara’s workout consisted of, it’s certainly a good sign that he’s back to strengthening his knee. Hopefully we see him back on the ice soon enough.
