Jets defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson is recovering from a broken leg he suffered in the 2015 season finale against the Bills. During the offseason, he has posted updates on his recovery process on social media. He has a new update.
Wilkerson's agent also tweeted out an optimistic note about his client's recovery.
Barring any major setbacks with rehab, Mo Wilkerson will indeed be playing for someone at beginning of 2016 NFL season!— Chad Wiestling (@cwiestling) March 19, 2016
As some people have noted during past updates from Wilkerson, it is rare to hear from a player or his agent that he is behind schedule on recovery. This still seems like good news on the injury front.
