SUMMARY: DE Kyle Vanden Bosch is frustrated he's not on the field as he rehabs from shoulder surgery from both a conditioning and leadership standpoint. "It is real tough. I want to keep working and keep making progress, and it is difficult when you're not on the practice field," said Vanden Bosch. "I can make strength progress and conditioning progress, but it is hard to make actual football-field-type progress when I am not out there. I feel like I have more of a leadership role this year, and it is difficult to do from the sideline. But I am just going to try and do what I can do, so when I come back I'll be ready to go." KVB has vowed to be more of a leader and is already making an impact by motivating others as he rehabs. During this week's OTAs, KVB lined up wide to the left of the quarterback and sprinted downfield as fast as he could on each snap. By the end of the week, he had company on his sideline sprints — injured players Marcus White and Daniel Loper followed his lead and joined in. What do you think about this article?
