The New England Patriots' offensive line will be healthier entering training camp this upcoming week.

Their 2018 first-round pick, Isaiah Wynn, is not seen on New England's physically unable to perform list or non-football injury list. The reason? He officially passed his physical on Sunday and is cleared for Patriots training camp.

Wynn was selected with the 23rd overall pick out of Georgia with the expectation of him being Tom Brady's blindside blocker for 2018. Those plans were scrapped after Wynn tore his right Achilles tendon in the preseason, effectively ending his rookie year.

Luckily for the Patriots, they adapted following their top overall pick's injury, as they still managed to win Super Bowl LIII against the Los Angeles Rams.

New England's starting left tackle job is essentially Wynn's, as last season's blindside tackle, Trent Brown, signed a massive contract this offseason with the Oakland Raiders after the Patriots let him walk in free agency. That speaks to the Patriots' confidence level in Wynn's chance to make an immediate impact.

It also won't hurt he'll be opening up holes for Sony Michel, who he played with during their time at Georgia.
