Tyrann Mathieu is ready to roll. That’s probably what he’d say if you asked him about how his rehab is coming along, because apparently the man is on another level when it comes to his recovery from a late-season knee injury. Mathieu had season-ending surgery after tearing a ligament in his knee back on December 20, and according to Dan Bickley of AZ Central Sports, the team is basically begging him to slow down the rehab a bit.
“They’re having to hold him back,” teammate Larry Fitzgerald said. “He heals like Wolverine. He’s so passionate and we love him dearly. And we’re so happy to see he’s going to be ready to go for us by training camp, and he can pick right where he left off.”
Mathieu is expected to be back and ready to dominate once again in 2016, but there are obvious concerns, as he’s now torn his ACL in two of three seasons. Either way, if Fitzgerald is right and Mathieu really heals that fast, he’s probably going to be out going full speed much, much before the start of the upcoming season.
