JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Rashean Mathis is seemingly way ahead of schedule.
Mathis is running, cutting, jumping and lifting -- all less than six months after having reconstructive surgery on his left knee. He's not wearing a brace and is not lining up with the starters during organized team activities.
The latter could change soon.
Mathis said "it's not like I'm defying all odds. I knew there was a possibility I could be way ahead of the curve. It's just all about how I took care of myself."
