Draft Scout *Dontari Poe News
08/24/15 - NT Dontari Poe has moved into a second phase of his rehab from surgery six weeks ago for a herniated disc in his lower back. Poe has been with the team, receiving treatments in the training room but doing very little physically. That will change this week.
"He's doing great," said head coach Andy Reid. "He's made great strides. He's at least on schedule, if not a little bit ahead ... he's moving around and hasn't had any setbacks. He's had a great attitude with the whole thing."
Reid did not reveal what the timetable was for Poe's return to the field.
"He says he's going to play in the first game, and I go ‘alright, OK, we'll see,'" said Reid. "The doctors will have to evaluate that. It's up to the docs."
Would a return for the regular-season opener be a reasonable goal for Poe?
"It's more we'll see," Reid answered. "Let's see how he does in this phase with the exercise part of it. So far it's gone well, but let's see how that goes."
