OL Howard’s outlook

Posted by Chris Brown on August 8, 2011 – 7:22 am

Cordaro Howard got his first work on the field Sunday as he came off PUP. So what is the timetable for him to be 100 percent again?

Howard admits he’s not all the way back yet. He still has to build up the strength and endurance in his surgically repaired shoulder. That why his reps won’t be what they are for the other linemen. And while Howard is practicing he’ll also still have to continue doing exercises to get the shoulder back right.

“It feels good,” he said. “It’s been a long time coming and I’ve been working hard at it. I’ll continue with the rehabbing and continue out here with the reps.”

Howard, who figures to be in the mix for the swing tackle job behind projected starters Demetrius Bell and Erik Pears, isn’t sure just when he’ll be back to normal. He doesn’t have a target date.

“Not specifically, just whenever they feel I’m ready and I feel I’m ready the same way,” he said. “That’s definitely going to be the day. It’s not set as one day. I’m just trying to progress toward it.”
