Adrian Clayborn Rehab Ahead Of Schedule

May 28th, 2013

There’s been a lot of chatter the past 48 hours or so about fat/in shape NFL players around these here parts. Well, here’s one about a player dropping weight.

Joe was talking with Bucs defensive end Adrian Clayborn. The stud right defensive end was felled by a nasty knee injury but Clayborn has been a madman in working out this offseason to make sure he is ready to go for training camp at the end of July

Clayborn looked svelte, as if he dropped weight. Not enough, says Clayborn.

“I need to get down a little bit more,” Clayborn said.

Clayborn seems to have a different body built. He looks lean but apparently has really built up his upper body and legs.

“I am just more comfortable going into the season light, never know what is going to happen,” Clayborn said. “The rehab is going good. I’m ahead of schedule. No tweaks or setbacks, going good. I hope to keep it positive. My goal is to be in pads by training camp.”

Joe will be very interested to see what the new-look Clayborn does to left tackles.

    Most wouldn’t care I’d he looked like the Goodyear blimp if he can give us 10+ sacks this year.

    How is Nicks rehab going? We’ve heard very little about him that I can remember.

  4. Big Marlon B Says:

    if Clayborn is battling “left defensive tackles”, this team is going to have some big problems on their hands Joe.

    how does one build there legs after a major knee injury?

    that doesn’t make any sense to me.

    and Joe….what about knicks???

    said he was on the sideline due to injury in camp. I thought it was just a toe?

    hell, he could have chopped it off and been healed by now. this is concerning. any news?

    “how does one build there legs after a major knee injury?”

    Rehab tends to focus on the injured limb, along with the opposing limb. This would have strengthened the legs.

    I’m thinking a down year got under his skin and now he has a chip on his shoulder. And I think teams may have to double team him, which will open things up for Bowers and McCoy.

    I still want to see just what we have to replace Miller. Up until he plays, its all talk.

    doing straight push and pull exercises is what they do in the beginning to get the leg stronger….Later down the line they start running and then cutting…..cutting is the scary part that is where you can hurt a knee ligament.
