Dustin Keller’s 2013 season came to an abrupt end before it was even able to get started.
Keller had his knee obliterated in a preseason game between the Miami Dolphins and Houston Texans last August. Texans safety D.J. Swearinger collided with Keller’s knee trying to make a tackle. The blow proved devastating to Keller’s knee. He suffered torn a torn ACL, MCL and PCL along with a dislocated knee due to the collision.
Keller missed the entire season due to the injury and was placed on injured reserve by the Dolphins. Eight months after the injury occurred, Keller is apparently ready to get back on the football field.
According to Jordan Raanan of The Star-Ledger, Keller’s agent, Eugene Parker, says Keller is “ready to go” right now.
Keller still remains a free agent looking for a team to take a chance on him. However, with just over two weeks to go until the draft, teams may see if they can find help at the position in the draft first before re-evaluating the free agent market.
Keller may have to wait a few more weeks to get the opportunity he seeks. In his last full season with the Jets in 2011, Keller caught 65 passed for 815 yards and five touchdowns.
