Tyson Alualu Off Crutches, Practice Timetable Unknown

New, comments

Jacksonville Jaguars defensive tackle Tyson Alualu played much of last season with an injured knee, and really has yet to play a season in the NFL completely healthy. Alualu underwent knee surgery earlier in the year, and according to this report is off his crutches and walking around.

Jaguars DT Tyson Alualu said he has been off crutches about 10 days after undergoing knee surgery early this off-season. He said there's no timeframe for him practicing. "I'm just excited and looking forward to a great season with two healthy knees," he said.

The timetable for Alualu's return to practice isn't known right now, but it's probably in his best interest to take it slow and make sure he's healthy. Alualu's knee injury originated while doing the Oklahoma Drill, a staple at training camp during the public practices under former head coach Jack Del Rio. It's unknown at this time if Mike Mularkey will continue with the Oklahoma Drill.
