After missing most of the 2020 season with a knee injury, Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton appears to be on track to return in time for the 2021 season. Sutton has been working out at the UCHealth Training Center, rehabbing his knee and training for a return to the field this fall.
Last week, the 25-year-old wide receiver shared a video on Instagram showing his breakdown ability with a brace on his knee.
“He’s where he should be at in this phase of his recovery,” Broncos coach Vic Fangio said when asked about Sutton back in January. “He’s doing very, very well, and his attitude is great. He’s attacking it.”
Sutton was selected by the Broncos in the second round of the 2018 NFL draft out of SMU. He hauled in 42 receptions for 704 receiving yards and four touchdowns as a rookie before a breakout season in 2019.
Sutton made the Pro Bowl in his second season after totaling 72 catches for 1,112 yards and six touchdowns. He has one year left on his contract.
