Clifton, who missed Green Bay's final six games, recently underwent arthroscopic knee surgery for a injury prior to the pelvic injury. He said he is still undergoing physical therapy but expects to participate in off-season workouts and be ready for training camp.
"I'm not bitter toward Warren Sapp," Clifton said in an interview with WCMT in his hometown of Martin, Tenn., on Wednesday. "I hold no grudges at all. It's part of the game and you assume the risks when you play."
The National Football League, upon further review, deemed the Sapp's block legal. But Packers coach Mike Sherman confronted Sapp after the game and said the hit was unnecessary.
