Stanford quarterback Keller Chryst is working his way back from an ACL tear, but his coach thinks he’s going to be ready for the start of the season.
Stanford head coach David Shaw told reporters on Tuesday night that he “feels pretty good” about Chryst starting the season opener against Rice in Sydney, Australia on August 26.

If Chryst is able to make it back by August 26, it would be an impressive comeback. Chryst was hurt in Stanford’s Sun Bowl victory against North Carolina on December 30, 2016.
That would mean Chryst would have had a full comeback from an ACL injury in less than nine months, which is very impressive.
