Pittsburgh Steelers inside linebacker Devin Bush is looking to return in 2021 after having most of his 2020 season wiped out by a knee injury in Week 6 that required surgery. Judging by recent video on Instagram of the Steelers’ 2019 first round draft pick out of Michigan, he’s looking very fit and thus likely ready to resume at least partial practices by the time the team reports to training camp later this summer.
“Rehab is going good. I am on schedule,” said Bush back in February about his knee rehab. “I am feeling stronger week by week. I am trying to get ready physically for next year, especially for camp. I am just staying positive about things and doing everything I can possible to make myself one of the best players next year.”
Since his surgery took place, we have seen Bush in quite a few social media videos going through his rehab process. He should now be about seven months removed from his ACL surgery at this point. We hope he’ll be ready come the start of training camp in July.
It will ultimately be interesting to see if Bush is placed on the Steelers’ Active PUP list at the start of training camp in later July. For now, however, it looks like Bush is still very much on course to resume his career in 2021.
In the five games that Bush played in last season he registered 26 total tackles, three passes defensed and one sack.
