In a season of relative disappointment, Colt Anderson was a pleasant surprise last year. The safety from Montana was voted the teams' special teams MVP last season after a stellar performance on that unit over the first 12 games of the season. However, that was ended when an ACL tear landed him on IR.

This offseason, Anderson has been rehabbing with the intention of being back by week 1. So far, he says, everything is on schedule.

"I'm feeling really good with where I'm at. I just started running here. My rehab is just a process where we try to hit certain timelines. I hit the timeline to start running so hopefully we continue to hit timelines and be ready for the season."

Anderson's rehab has been aided by a new type of treadmill the Eagles have called an "Alter G"

"It's a treadmill that allows you to take body weight off you, which ultimately doesn't put as much pressure on your knee. so my knee is able to do a lot more rehab wise that I wouldn't normally be able to do."

Anderson also had a son this offseason, started a clothing company and is about to get married. Check out more from Derrick Gunn in this video.
