Hunter Bryant’s promising freshman season was derailed by a left knee injury. The Washington tight end has spent the offseason rehabilitating his knee injury and is confident he’ll be able to build on last year’s promising season.
The Huskies are closely monitoring Bryant’s knee this spring. Washington coaches want to ease him in.
“He is doing about as much as he can handle right now,” Washington tight end coach Jordan Paopao said, per The Washington Times’ Adam Jude. “He’s doing an awesome job, and slowly but surely we’ll continue to build his workload.”
The 6-foot-2 tight end says his knee feels good and he credits Washington’s medical staff for directing the rehab process.
“I’m feeling pretty good,” Bryant said. “Our training staff is incredible.”
Bryant led all Washington tight ends in receptions and years as a freshman. The Huskies have good depth at the tight end position this year. Bryant should lead the way again for Washington in his second season.
