Tight end Reggie Kelly, one of the more technically-sound Bengals, was a little uncertain about how good his would be when he returned to the field for the first time since rupturing his Achilles last Aug. 2.
Not only is there no pain, the 33-year-old body seems to remember what to do.
“I feel excellent. To be honest with you, my technique is a lot better than I thought it would be right now,” Kelly said last week after one of his first on-field sessions. “Obviously I have a lot of work to do to get back where I was. But it definitely feels great. I’m able to push off with it with no problems.”
