Former Alabama receiver John Metchie may have torn his ACL in the SEC Championship Game in December 2021, but he intends to be on track for Houston Texans training camp in late July.
According to video from Texans Wire alumnus Coty Davis, Metchie took to the practice field on Friday during rookie minicamp outside at Houston Methodist Training Center.
Coach Lovie Smith did not have a timetable for when the second-round rookie would be ready to go, but was confident he would return to 100%.
“Eventually, he will be ready to go,” said Smith. “There’s a lot that he can do before that. He’s not 100% yet, but in time he will be.”
