During difficult times, you have to look for the silver lining in things.
After missing his entire rookie season with a foot injury, that’s exactly what former Clemson running back Travis Etienne is doing.
The first round pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars met with the media this week, taking a shot a the short-lived tenure of former head coach Urban Meyer, saying that if he was going to miss a season, he missed the right one.
“Definitely, that’s just the human element of it,” Etienne told the media. “Just seeing the results, you’re definitely like, ‘If there was any year to miss, I missed a great one.’”
With Meyer now out and Doug Pederson is, Etienne is looking forward to getting back to work for the Jags in 2022. The ACC’s all-time leading rusher is excited about playing for a coach with a Super Bowl ring.
“It’s easy to get behind a guy who’s been there, who has the blueprint,” Etienne said about the new head coach. “There’s a trust in him.”
While the running back isn’t quite all the way back just yet, he’s almost there. By the time training camp rolls around, expect to see Etienne at 100-percent.
“I’m not doing everything but I’m doing the majority of the stuff,” Etienne said. “Two or three weeks ago I felt like I could get back to myself, just being out there running full speed, just running. It felt awesome to be running.”
