Teams are now holding serious training sessions as the 2020 NFL season is less than a week away. Many players, unfortunately, fell to injuries and had to undergo mild to severe surgeries. Some have already recovered and immediately returned to their teams’ training camps.
New York Jets wideout Denzel Mims returned to his individual drills for the first time since the training camp opened. Mims suffered a hamstring injury earlier this year. Like Mims, Los Angeles Chargers’ Derwin James underwent successful surgery to repair an injury in his right knee. He is expected to make a full recovery anytime soon.
Green Bay Packers linebacker Kamal Martin, unfortunately, would likely be out for 6 to 8 weeks due to a serious injury on his meniscus. The same goes to Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Carlton Davis. The player won’t be able to return to training camps for a while to mend his shoulder injury.
