Don't expect Runyan at a camp

It's funny (and probably sad) how often ideas for MTC pop into my head.

Don't expect Runyan at a camp

It's funny (and probably sad) how often ideas for MTC pop into my head.

I was in the 12 items or less line at the Columbus Boulevard Wal-Mart tonight and realized I was going to be waiting for awhile to pay for my Soft Batch cookies, Right Guard deodorant and other assorted items.

So I took out my Blackberry to check on the Phils and then jumped on Twitter to see that PFT had posted an item on Jon Runyan.

And that's when I remembered I meant to write about Runyan earlier today.

Better late than never, right?

The veteran offensive lineman was on WIP yesterday with Glen Macnow and Anthony Gargano to discuss the death of his former teammate, Steve McNair.

But near the end of the interview, he provided an injury/rehab update.

"I'm doing well, haven't had any setbacks," Runyan said, adding that the doctor told him to ramp up his activity before seeing him again in about four weeks.

Runyan said he's right on pace and was told he won't miss any of the season.

But has he heard from any teams?

"I hear from teams occasionally, but it's more of a 'When are you gonna be ready?' And I'm like 'I'll call you when I'm ready,'" he said.

Gargano suggested half-jokingly that he'd probably be 'ready' as soon as training camp was over.

"Probably exactly that day," Runyan said.

When asked if he had any desire to be in Lehigh in August, the 14-year veteran responded, "Why? Do you have a desire to go up there and broadcast?"

So it appears he'll continue to rehab, see how injuries and contract squabbles play out during training camp and then hopefully join a team in mid-to-late August.

In case you missed it earlier, we wrote about the league suspending Giants LB Michael Boley for one game.
