Bengals seventh-round pick LB Markus Bailey told Charles Davis on SiriusXM that he is 7 1/2 months removed from ACL surgery and that he should be ready to go in time for live training camp later this summer. (Alex Marvez on Twitter)
Bailey played five seasons at Purdue, recording 301 tackles, 13.5 sacks, and six interceptions. His 2019 ended abruptly after suffering a torn ACL. He had surgery late in 2019 and seems to be recovering well. Bailey is a much needed upgrade to Cincinnati’s weak linebacker corps. He’ll have a great chance to make the team this season even as a seventh-round draft pick.
