As first reported by Zac Etheridge, Zac Etheridge has recovered from last season’s terrifying neck injury and has been cleared to resume his football career at Auburn. Ted Roof, your thoughts?
“This is certainly quite a boost for all of us … He was so tough about it — he never sulked, never had that poor me attitude. He knows what he wants to do and he did everything possible to make that happen. It’s inspiring it what it is.”
That is what it is. Also what it is: a huge boon to a secondary that little by little could turn into one of the SEC’s sharpest and most experienced. I’d worry about Etheridge’s ability to adjust back to the speed of the game after what he’s endured, but there’s also nothing in his response to his injury that suggests he’d work this hard and then not make the most possible of this incredible opportunity.
War Eagle, Zac. Now go kick ass.
When every step is a victory this is already a winning season.
War Eagle, indeed. Best possible outcome after such a horrifying injury.
War. Damn. Eagle.
This is great news…I always thought he was going to come back since he never had surgery…I have no worries about him…And strongly beleive he will be in an NFL camp this time next season.
Even if all he does is run onto the field wearing the Navy AU jersey
AU is playing with house money.
War Damn Zach!!
According to him in most reports, he’s been doing everything but hitting since he was cleared to run and take the brace off his neck a few months ago… so I don’t think that [with fall practice] he’ll miss a beat in the season. Maybe his contact is reluctant at first, but I believe him when he says his conditioning and training has been even more dedicated than in the past.
War eagle, Zac! 45 days? I lost count..
He is really sticking his neck out for Auburn.
As usual, Michael: So incredibly wrong. So beautifully right.
