LB Casillas Healthy and Out to Reclaim Starting LB Spot

Yahoo! Sports reports that LB Jonathan Casillas is out to reclaim his starting job at linebacker this season after he lost it last year after he hurt his foot in the last preseason game.

Linebacker Jonathan Casillas was on his way to being the team’s starter on the weak side last season when he suffered a foot injury in the team’s final preseason game. That ended his season.

Now, Casillas is back, and says he will be ready and 100 percent for training camp with the goal to reclaim the job. “I’m right on pace,” Casillas said. “We haven’t played football yet, and you never really know until you get out there and start doing things like that. But I’m taking my time. I’m not in a rush to do anything, full boar, as of right now given the lockout situation. I feel like that’s in my favor.”
