As many of you may know, Jaguars DE Austen Lane has a blog at http://prointerviews.org/blog/austenlane. It’s a great source of inside information such as this tidbit he dropped today.
“Some fans have asked me about D’Anthony Smith and how his injury has healed. I am happy to report that D. Smith is 100% and I quote “excited to get back on the field.””
As most of you will remember, Smith missed the entire 2010 season with an achilles injury. It’s hard to tell how a player will respond coming off of such a major injury, but the fact that he’s “100%” is good because it gives him plenty of time to build confidence in that tendon before the season starts.
