Chris Culliver plans on playing in 2016
The Washington Redskins' secondary could have been so much stronger if it had Chris Culliver for a full season.
Culliver was forced out of 10 games after tearing his ACL and MCL in his right knee on Thanksgiving Day.
That's a particularly brutal injury, and one that requires a decent amount of time to recover from. But, according to Culliver himself, he is gunning for playing time in the 2016 season.
“I'm going to be ready by the season, you're going to see me on the field this season,” Culliver said. “You might see me in and out of OTAs or something like that but, like I said, you'll see me on the field this season.”
That confidence is encouraging, and would certainly help out the Redskins. Between he, Will Blackmon and Bashaud Breeland, the Redskins have a respectable amount of depth among their corners, and that doesn't even include DeAngelo Hall, who can certainly suit up as a corner if needed. But Hall will more than like serve as a safety for the Redskins next season.
