Arizona Cardinals defensive back Tyrann Mathieu will more than likely open up the 2014 NFL regular season on the physically unable to perform list.
Mathieu has been making some great progress in recovery from his ACL and LCL surgery. Apparently he’s a couple weeks ahead of schedule but will still take a little bit of time to make sure everything’s ready to go. Now according to AZCardinals.com, Mathieu has resumed a running program.
The injury occurred during Arizona’s game against the St. Louis Rams on December 8 where he tore both his ACL and LCL. He was placed on the injured reserve on December 10 which ended his season.
There’s a slight chance that he could be ready to go during Week 1 of the regular season. But that depends on if he suffers any set backs or not. He finished the 2013 regular season with 68 combined tackles, one sack, forced fumble and two interceptions.
The 21 year old defensive back was able to get rid of his knee brace during the beginning of March which was a good sign to begin with.
I wish this guy nothing but the best.
