It might seem like an April Fools’ Day prank for positive injury news to come out of the Vikings beat.

Alas, this is not a drill.

The Vikings, as injury-stricken as any NFL team in 2016, appear optimistic in safety Harrison Smith’s recovery from left ankle surgery. News he had the off-season procedure was reported Wednesday. On Saturday, some context was added: Smith will be “full speed” come the start of training camp, per Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press.

Smith suffered a high ankle sprain on Dec. 1 against the Cowboys.
