Falcons left tackle Sam Baker is expecting to receive full medical clearance in the coming days.

A season ago, Baker dealt with a left knee issue that ultimately required surgery. He spent the majority of the season on injured reserve.

"In a couple days, I should be cleared," Baker told ESPN.com. "I’ve been running, doing everything, and I should get fully cleared in a couple days. It’s great, especially because we’re getting ready with the offseason stuff, to be able to get out with the offense and to be able to go back to doing plays and stuff like that."

Baker only appeared in four games a season ago.
