Last night we pointed out that Ja’Marr Chase was still walking on crutches earlier this week as a precaution.
Chase now threw precautions to the wind.
Via Jan Rapoport of NFL Media, Chase gave up crutches. His return is drawing near.
Chase was not placed on injured reserve, which would have required him to miss at least four games. Today he will miss his third game.
Could Chase be back next Sunday in Tennessee? Let’s see. But he is definitely moving in that direction, as he now walks without crutches to absorb some of his body weight.
