Bengals cornerback Leon Hall has been through this before.
Hall tore his left Achilles during the 2011 season but was able to recover in time for the 2012 training camp. And last season, Hall sustained a tear to his right Achilles, which forced him to end the season on injured reserve.
Having been through that experience before, Hall has been able to compare this recovery to the previous one. And with that, he said he's on track to be ready for the 2014 season.
“Probably a couple of months ago I realized that my right one was ahead just kind of comparing what I was doing at a certain point in the rehab with my other one a couple years ago,” Hall said, via the Bengals' team website.
Hall tore his right Achilles earlier this past season in relation to when he tore his left one in 2011, which has given him some extra time with his recovery.
If the Bengals can get Hall back at full strength, it would be a big plus to a team that features one of the league's better front-sevens.
In his career with Cincinnati, Hall has 23 interceptions and 94 pass deflections.
