Cleveland Browns sixth-round pick Jamoris Slaughter is continuing to recover from his torn Achilles tendon, but he is expected to be ready for the start of the team’s training camp. Slaughter will likely be limited early on in camp, but he will continue to approach 100 percent and compete for playing time that is more than just on special teams.
From the Cleveland Plain Dealer:
When we checked in with Nelson (anterior cruciate ligament) at minicamp and Slaughter (Achilles) at a youth football camp last month, both said they’ll be ready by training camp. Often, you’ll see players coming off injuries being held back a little in camp and easing back into it. I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s the case.
Slaughter is not expected to see much time at safety, but once he is 100 percent he could be in the mix for a starting job. Unfortunately for Slaughter, that opportunity likely won’t come until next season at the earliest.
