“He was limited in practice and he went through individuals. We'll see how he is tomorrow , maybe if he’s fine and everything’s good, he can take a couple of reps.”
His recovery process has been a long one, ongoing since training camp, so the fact that coach Turner felt this was a good time to get him back on the practice field is a promising sign.
"It’s really been about him. It’s a day to day thing. He’s made progress over the last week and today we felt like it was an opportunity for him to get out and do a little individual work , and do some work on the side. He obviously has a lot of conditioning work to do, he hasn’t been very active, but it’s a start."
Gaither also spoke after practice, conveying his feelings that this was a big step in the right direction for him and that he has his site set on being ready for Kansas City this Sunday.
"It’s been an ongoing process, but I feel good today. My eyes are on Kansas City, Ill take it one game at a time as I continue to progress. That’s my focus."
