Buccaneers Injury Update: Austin Seferian-Jenkins says he'll be ready for training camp

Rookie Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins found himself limited during Tampa Bay's rookie minicamp, but told Tampa Bay Times reporter Greg Auman he'll be ready to go for training camp.

Seferian-Jenkins had surgery on the foot in February after suffering a stress fracture. Roughly five months out from the procedure, the 6-foot-5 Mackey Award winner has been doing some work and feels ready to start camp.

"I feel really good. My foot feels really good," Seferian-Jenkins said. "I've been running routes, doing all the exercise and workout drills that they've asked me to do. I feel very comfortable and confident that I'll be ready to go when it comes to training camp."

Seferian-Jenkins, a second-round choice out of the University of Washington, missed OTAs and minicamp, but not due to injury. UW is on quarters, meaning classes didn't end until mid-June, days after Tampa's mandatory minicamp wrapped up.
