Micah Johnson of the Calgary Stampeders practiced for the first time since suffering his second ACL tear on his left knee Aug. 16th. The defensive lineman has been rehabbing his ACL for two years.

“Anybody that’s rehabbed knows it’s not fun. So it’s been a real mental test. Extremely tedious,” Johnson told the Calgary Herald. “I’m a little further along than when I came back last year. Every day’s just an adjustment, trying to get better. And every day, for the most part, it has been getting better. Today was a good stepping stone, being able to hit the field and do some individual drills.”

Johnson has been mostly sidelined for the last two seasons and defensive line coach, DeVone Claybrooks, is excited at the talent he will be getting back.

“He has the potential to be dominant at that position.,’’ reminds Claybrooks. “ We still see the same explosion, the same skill set. We’re talking about a tremendous player here. A game-changer”.

No timetable or potential return date has been set. Johnson is focused on gaining strength and getting his body back to top shape before he returns. Johnson acknowledged the fact that pushing too hard to be ready for the 2014 training camp put him further at risk which contributed to his second tear.
