The Tennessean reports that cornerback Ryan Mouton seems pretty much back to 100 percent, and is ready to have a big impact on the team in 2012.
Eight months removed from the devastating torn Achilles tendon he suffered during the first padded practice of training camp last year, Titans cornerback Ryan Mouton started sprinting last week and is on the fast track to competing again for a job in the secondary. His recovery has been grueling, however, both physically and mentally.
He had surgery on his right Achilles last August and spent the first eight weeks on crutches. “That first step, after being in a walking boot for (14) weeks, I really didn’t have the confidence to even put my foot down,” Mouton said. “The first step was a weird feeling. It was like learning to walk again as a child or something. Now I feel like I am moving in the right direction. And I am definitely as hungry as I have ever been. I want to get out there and show what I have.” General Manager Ruston Webster said Mouton would be in the mix, particularly for the nickel, as long as he is healthy.
