Little ankle update- super excited to be out of the post surgery cast, and into a boot. Means the physical therapy can start and progress! Already so itchy to get back to full lifting and throwing! Ready to attack this head on and come out firing next year— Jameson Taillon (@JTaillon50) November 10, 2021
