What all are you able to do?Greg Childs:
Ah! Just like what you seen, running sprints, running routes, cone drills, feet work you know I'm doing all the things I was doing before. I'm pretty much able to do all my drills. All the wide receiver drills as of now. Reporter:
Are you able to cut?Greg Childs:
Yea of course. like 4 corner drills. put the cones out go around the cones.. um run routes, slants, post routes, drags. All the routes, really. So, I'm doing a lot of cutting, some jumping, some sprinting.. so all the necessary things I need to be doing I'm doing them now.
How long ago did you start running like you have been today? and sprinting?Greg Childs:
Oh man. Uh, been a couple months actually. This isn't my first time, this isn't my first month doing it. I've been doing it for a while now. Reporter:
You stuck around here to rehab then?Greg Childs:
Yeah, of course. I stayed up here the entire time. I might've went home maybe a week and a half since I got hurt. so the rest of the time I've been doing my rehab here with sug (head trainer) and them. I got a great trainer staff. They've got me on schedule. We've got treatments we do. We're taking it slow, but we're also.. we're getting in the most work we can.
OK. I'm tired of typing out blurbs from the presser. Nutshell version: Apparently the surgeons did some different things with the surgery than they did with the previous injury and hes doing more now (earlier) after having had both done than when he had his 1st surgery done while at Arkansas. He mentioned its all good going forward. The repairs are excellent and hes getting stronger. No time table is set, however. He wouldn't go that far (which sounds like media damage control), but from what I've gathered previously things are looking up.
Good news anyway.
