Today, Jenny Vrentas tweeted the following:

Landry said he has been in Arizona, getting stem-cell and platelet-rich plasma therapy on Achilles/heel. He said Achilles is healed.

This, for obvious reasons, is great news. Assuming it's true, of course. Landry did not practice today but has been participating in classroom sessions and is learning the defense. It sounds like Landry will not participate fully until training camp, which I don't find surprising. There's no reason to strain him early on when he can heal for a bit longer and spend the time just studying the playbook. Rex Ryan went further today by saying that Landry is further along in his rehabilitation than the Jets trainers were expecting. All this is good news. The healthier Landry gets, the less likely we see Eric Smith on the field. I suspect we'll be seeing a lot Landry/Yeremiah Bell/Josh Bush this season, with Smith in on certain, very limited, packages. If Landry is in fact healed, or rapidly healing, and we get the Landry of his earlier healthier years, this may be one of our best signings of the off-season. Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Edit: Good article here by Vrentas on the topic.
