We haven't heard much from Travis Long since he went undrafted, but it sounds like the former WSU linebacker/defensive end could be close to recovering from the knee injury suffered late in the season.
John Middlekauff, who writes for NFLSFuture.com and RealitySportsOnline.com tweeted some Long updates on Monday.
Word I'm hearing is former Washington State LB Travis Long has been medically cleared to resume football activities. Torn ACL in 2012— John Middlekauff (@JMiddle365) July 8, 2013
Correction on Travis, just talked with him- will see the doctor w/in the next week. Says he feels 100% and will be ready for a training camp— John Middlekauff (@JMiddle365) July 8, 2013
I see him being a good project for a 3-4 team. A potential OLB who will just need some time.— John Middlekauff (@JMiddle365) July 8, 2013
Assuming he's medically cleared soon, Long would be ahead of schedule as most ACL recoveries are pegged at 9-12 months. There is a chance Long could get a training camp invite and have a shot to make a roster this season after all.
