Daniels expects to return from foot injury

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Mike Daniels and his wife Heaven hosted the 'First Annual Daniels Back to School Bash' for 150 local kids at the Spring Lake Church in Downtown Green Bay.

Kids received backpacks filled with essential school supplies for the new year. The celebration included music, dancing, free haircuts and lunch.

Daniels, who is in his eighth season since being drafted in the fourth round of the 2012 draft still gets excited for the start of training camp.

"Every year going into camp it's a different kind of excitement because every year is different and obviously we know that we have a different kind of excitement because we have a whole new coaching staff," Daniels said. "We'll see how everything goes along, but everybody has had a lot of positive energy and I like the direction that everything is going."

Daniels played in the fewest games in a season in 2018 after he missed the final six games due to a foot injury.

"My foot is coming along. You guys will see me on Thursday. I'm excited. God has brought me a long way with this thing. Our trainers have been doing a phenomenal job with me so I'm ready to get back out there more than ever. I'll just leave it at that. You guys will see," Daniels said.

Daniels is in a contract year with the Packers.
