"It's really good to be back in the mix and hopefully get that starting position," the 26 year old told BBC Radio Norfolk.
"It was really tough from playing every game to not playing until the end of the season.
"During that time, you're trying everything you can to get back but it was just a torn adductor that didn't show up on a scan.
"But (I want to) look for the positives now. It's been done, I'm fit again, I had a great pre-season.
"It's been really tough but I've enjoyed every minute. Normally you don't look forward to it but I couldn't wait for it to come round."
