McCourty (shoulder) was on the practice field Friday and intercepted Danny Etling during the 11-on-11 session, the Boston Herald reports.
McCourty underwent a procedure in February to clean up problems with his shoulder, but it appears that issue is now behind him. The veteran safety has had a remarkably healthy career to date, missing a total of just five regular-season games since he entered the league in 2010, and should slot in as the team's starting free safety again in 2018.
McCourty underwent shoulder surgery Wednesday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.
The surgery is not believed to be anything serious. Per the report, the procedure was done as a means of absolving a nagging injury that left McCourty with some discomfort during the season. Barring any unforeseen setbacks, he'll be 100 percent well before training camp gets underway.
McCourty finished the 2017 regular season with a team-high 97 tackles and an interception in 16 games.
McCourty, who practiced fully Friday as the Patriots continue their prep for Super Bowl LII, is under contract with the team through the 2019 season. A first-rounder in 2010, McCourty is a team leader and still going strong at this stage of his career. He's poised to remain a mainstay in the New England secondary again next season.
McCourty (shoulder) logged a limited practice session Thursday.
McCourty did not show up on the injury report Wednesday, but he had been dealing with a shoulder injury prior to the playoffs starting. With 10 days to go until the Super Bowl, his limited participation is more than likely precautionary.
