Wide receiver Eric Decker was still available for the Broncos to take him with the 23rd pick in the third round of the draft in part because he’s still recovering from a foot injury suffered in college at Minnesota.
But there’s good news for Broncos fans about Decker’s availability for the 2010 season, as Decker ran routes, caught passes and went through drills today at the football camp on the Minnesota campus hosted by Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald.
Asked if he’s healthy, Decker said, “Yeah. It’s still a day-to-day thing and the training staff is helping me to move along and progress at a very good rate. I feel comfortable every day so that’s the best I can say.”
Decker indicated that he expects to be ready to go for training camp.
“Oh yeah. I didn’t get a chance to practice in OTAs and minicamp,” he said. “I’m a little nervous and I’m anxious because I’m back to football, I’m back playing, I’m done in the training room and that’s exciting to me.”
