No timetables for return of Worthy, Richardson

DE Jerel WorthyTwo of last year’s rookies who ended the season on injured reserve, DE Jerel Worthy and S Sean Richardson, both plan to be back in 2013 but there is no timetable on either player.

Worthy (pictured) is likely to be out the longest, having injured his knee in the final regular-season game at Minnesota last season. Though it’s possible Worthy could miss his entire second season if his recovery takes a full 12 months, he vowed to be back sometime in 2013.

“I haven’t had any setbacks to this point,” said Worthy, a second-round draft pick who had 2 1/2 sacks and one forced fumble last season. “It’s all been positive coming from this corner, so I just want to stay on this path.”

Richardson, meanwhile, is aiming to be back for training camp in late July but wasn’t making any promises. He is coming back from surgery to repair a herniated disc in his neck.

After making the roster as an undrafted rookie last year, Richardson first missed time with a hamstring injury, then played in five games (mostly on special teams) before beginning to have back problems. That led to the discovery of the neck issue, which required surgery. It was performed by the same doctor who fixed Denver QB Peyton Manning’s neck, he said.

“It doesn’t give me any problems,” he said. “I actually forget I had the surgery unless somebody asks, ‘Hey, how’s your neck?'”

The surgery wasn’t as complicated as initially thought, Richardson added, so his recovery has been fairly smooth. Without getting into specifics, he said the medical staff has given him five hurdles he must clear to get back on the field, and he’s currently working on step four.

He hopes to clear the final two hurdles in time for training camp, so he can begin competing with Jerron McMillian and M.D. Jennings for the starting safety spot opposite Morgan Burnett.

“I’ll be back soon. I’m pretty close,” he said. “It’s been a long journey.”
