is back. After missing the end of the 2011 season and sitting out all of
2012, the running back says he has fully recovered from the devastating
injury -- he tore his ACL, MCL and patellar tendon in 2011 -- that many

feel-good one no matter how he plays this year. But if he has truly
returned to form, he could be the team's most valuable player. He was
the only FBS running back to carry the ball more than 100 times and
maintain an average of eight yards per touch in 2011.
He believes he can carry that load again.
