Johnny Knox's Agent: Knox On Schedule For July Return

Posted by Matt Clapp | 2/24/2012 01:40:00 PM |

Johnny Knox's agent, Marc Lillibridge, said today that Knox is on schedule to be fully recovered from his back injury by July:

"His rehab has been going great," agent Marc Lillibridge told the Sun-Times. "He's on the schedule that he planned to be back by early to mid July. He feels good."

Lillibridge said Knox hasn't had any setbacks yet and that his quality of life is "as good as it could be" now.

Lillibridge added that his client has been thankful for the support of the Bears medical staff.

"The team has been phenomenal with Johnny's rehab," Lillibridge said. "He couldn't ask for a better staff."

Agents are always overly optimistic about their clients, but let's hope Lillibridge is right here. If Knox could even play in a single preseason game, that should be considered a near miracle after how gruesome the injury looked.
