The last time Patriots fans saw Vince Wilfork, he was sitting on the back of a golf cart headed for the locker room during the first quarter of the Patriots-Falcons game.
It was later determined that he tore his Achilles and would be out for the remainder of the season.
On Tuesday, Wilfork broke his silence, taking to Twitter and posting a message to thank his fans for the support and kind words.
