Cameron Heyward on track for March 30 Pro Day workout

APTOPIX Sugar Bowl Football

Ohio State defensive end Cameron Heyward, the son of the late NFL and Pitt standout Craig “Ironhead” Heyward, continues to recover from Tommy John surgery on his elbow in January.

Though he’ll miss the March 11 Pro Day workout in Columbus, he’ll have a full Pro Day session on March 30 at OSU.

All 32 NFL teams have been informed of the development.

Michael Perrett of SportsTrust Advisors tells PFT that Heyward has had full range of motion for “a few weeks,” and he already has resumed lifting.  “He is definitely ahead of schedule recovery wise,” Perrett said.  “After surgery, Dr. Andrews tabbed it as an 8-12 week recovery period depending on how fast he heals . . . looks like he is a fast healer.”

Silva has Heyward going to the Packers with the last pick in round one in his second mock draft.

    Cam “Spaghetti Elbow” Hayward hopes to emulate his father’s success in the league.

    An injured D-Lineman in the first round? Packers fans will be thinking of Justin Harrell all over again.

    I wonder how many MPH it will take off his fastball. At the very least he will have trouble refinding his control and will have to rely on his control to get him through the rough spots.

    Seriously though, I’ve never heard of Tommy John surgery being required for a player that doesn’t throw….how will this affect him inthe short term? Will he be able to lift on the 30th… will he be able to lift this year at all? Not being able to use your tricep can be a serious impediment to a DLineman.

    If I remember correctly, IronHead was more of a MeatHead.
