He was covering a punt against the Cowboys in Week 16, and on a freak play running downfield after he was shoved by a Dallas player, his knee cap was dislocated and as he went to the ground the knee cap was shattered into three pieces. It helped explain why Marcus Easley was in tears from the pain before being carted off the field. Easley joined the John Murphy Show to talk about how his offseason rehab is going.
“I’ve made a lot of progress,” said Easley. “It’s been nothing but uphill since the end of the season. I’m getting around a lot better now and healing up real well. I’m getting better every day.”
Easley has dealt with different knee injuries in the past, but in his estimation they don’t compare to this one.
“This is the most severe injury that I’ve had to deal with,” he said. “It’s been tough. The first couple of weeks out of surgery was rough, but things are definitely looking up now and I’m healing fine which is all good.
“Things are kind of slow and steady knowing that bones were broken. There’s only so much you can do because the body has to heal itself. Over time as things heal you can begin to develop all the muscles around it and get stronger.”
