As valiant an effort as Torell Troup made to be ready for the 2012 regular season, there was no way he was going to be ready in time to make a contribution on defense in the 2012 season.
Though he was practicing on a daily basis, he could not go much faster than half speed on the practice field. He underwent back surgery last December in which he had a broken vertebrae in his lower spine repaired and a bulging disc removed. Rehab was long and painful in the early months, but he fought through it and dragged himself out onto the practice field almost every day in camp.
Luck has not been on Troup’s side. Since he appeared in 15 games as a rookie, Troup will now have played in only six in 2011-2012.
