OL Lance Louis signs with Dolphins
Offensive lineman Lance Louis, still rehabilitating from a
season-ending knee injury, signed Wednesday with the Miami
Louis tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in
November with the Chicago Bears. He said his rehabilitation has
gone well, and he hopes to be ready for training camp in July.
”Last time I went to the doctor, he told me I was ahead of
schedule,” Louis said. ”I definitely want to be there for
training camp and competing with those guys.”
The 6-foot-3, 320-pound Louis spent the past four seasons with
the Bears, where he made 28 starts at guard and tackle. They
drafted him in the seventh round in 2009.
He said the Dolphins appealed to him in part because he thinks
they’re improving after four consecutive losing seasons.
”It’s a nice city, and a great team on the rise,” Louis said.
”I feel like Miami is going to be one of the teams to be reckoned
with this year.”
