INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – During an otherwise uneventful off-season for the Indianapolis Colts, Pat McAfee revealed a morsel of news.

The Pro Bowl punter had surgery on his left knee “seven weeks ago . . . to clean it up,’’ he told 1070 The Fan Monday afternoon. “The first couple of weeks of rehab were a little tough, but I’m on the back end of it right now.

“I’m about 85-90 percent right now. By the time training camp comes around I’ll be a hundred percent and I can’t wait for that day.’’

McAfee arguably is coming off the best season of his career.

He averaged 47.7 yards on 85 punts, a team record and second in the NFL. His 41.7 net average ranked fifth in the league. Also, McAfee averaged touchbacks on 87 percent of his kickoffs, the highest single-season mark since 1970, and the 156 kickoff return yards allowed by the Colts were the fewest in league history.
