Sims Back Sooner Than Expected

by: Michael Steffes

Rob Sims, who had his knee scoped near the end of the first team mini camps in early May, may make it back a bit sooner than expected. According to this blurb from PFW, Sims only expects to miss 3 to 4 days of the June mini camps. The team practices Mon through Thur., so four days would encompass the first week.

This is good news, if it turns out to be fact. Sims is switching positions, something the article addresses as well, and could use the time to get more accustomed to right guard. Also, the line has been hit hard with players recovering from injury. Sims getting some time would allow him to build important chemistry with Sean Locklear at the very least. If Chris Spencer can participate too, well then this mini camp may really get the ball rolling. END
