After missing time during OTAs, it sounds like New England Patriots wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster will be out on the field when training camp kicks off.
According to the Boston Globe’s Nicole Yang, the veteran said he’ll be ready to practice next week, with Smith-Schuster reportedly arriving in town this past Monday.
The former Chiefs and Steelers receiver signed a 3-year, $33-million contract this past offseason, adding a dynamic player to a receiving corps that saw Jakobi Meyers depart via free agency this offseason.
Smith-Schuster had been sidelined in the spring as he’s continued working his way back from a knee injury he suffered during the Conference Championship earlier this year.
The first public training camp sessions begin one week from tomorrow, with times still yet to be announced.
