Klug shed his walking boot in March, and is seemingly on track for a return at the beginning of training camp. The 29-year-old ruptured his Achilles tendon in Week 16 of last season. Barring any setbacks, the veteran should be on track to help provide depth on the defensive line for the start of his seventh season with the Titans.
Klug (Achilles) shed his walking boot and expects to be ready for training camp this summer, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. "It sounds like camp is going to be a go. So now I just have to put the work in to get ready," Klug said.
Klug, who ruptured an Achilles tendon in Week 16 of last season, is roughly three months removed from corrective surgery and has progressed to walking around on his own two feet since shedding his medically-prescribed walking boot in early March. With training camp still over four months away, the veteran still has plenty of time to make a full recovery and should return as a key piece of the Titans' defensive line rotation if he can avoid any and all setbacks.
Plug (Achilles) signed a contract with the Titans on Thursday, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.
Klug has been a consistent player at defensive end for the Titans over the course of his six year career. He had a career-high 26 tackles in 2016. Look for him to see a similar role in 2017 as he backs up starting ends Jurrell Casey and DaQuan Jones.
Klug (Achilles) is progressing well in his recovery from his December surgery, Paul Kuharsky of ESPN reports.
Klug tore his Achilles late in the season and still faces months of recovery before he's back to full health. He isn't expected to be ready to return prior to training camp. Klug is currently a pending free agent, but he may be cheaper for the Titans to re-sign given his injury.
