Bengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu looked like he was breaking out until he foot broke last season. From Week 10-12, Sanu scored four touchdowns in three games. But a few days after that third game, Sanu broke a bone in his left foot and was shelved for the rest of his rookie year.
The good news is that Sanu said this week he was cleared to run routes earlier this month and he is healing up well.
"It's great. It feels good," Sanu said of his foot via the team's official website. "I've been working out and running. I've been running routes for a while and it feels good."
This is noteworthy because Sanu is in the running to begin next season as the Bengals' No. 2 wideout. In other words, he could be the player that benefits the most from the massive amount of defensive attention that is drawn to A.J. Green. Marvin Jones is another candidate. Andrew Hawkins is more of a slot/No. 3 WR. Sanu should be a popular sleeper in deep drafts this summer, especially if he claims a starting job in training camp.
