Mohamed Sanu injury update: Bengals WR feels 'no nagging pain'

Andy Lyons

Cincinnati Bengals second-year wide receiver Mohamed Sanu has recovered fully from a stress fracture in his left foot, and will participate in Cincinnati's offseason workouts.

Cincinnati Bengals second-year wide receiver Mohamed Sanu no longer feels any nagging pain from the foot surgery he underwent in December, and declared himself to be 100 percent healthy, according to Geoff Hobson.

Sanu injured his foot during one of Cincinnati's late-November practices and underwent surgery to repair a stress fracture in his left foot shortly thereafter. Sanu will be present for Cincinnati's offseason workouts, which begin on Monday.

Prior to the injury, Sanu caught 16 passes on 25 targets for 154 yards and four touchdowns in just nine games during his abbreviated rookie campaign.

Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis has high hopes for Sanu and believes that Sanu is "way ahead" of where Chad Johnson was in his second year. Johnson had just 28 receptions for 329 yards and one touchdown in his rookie season, before exploding for 69 receptions, 1,166 yards and five touchdowns during his sophomore season.

Sanu will likely start opposite A.J. Green at wide receiver for Cincinnati in 2013, barring poor play or injury in training camp. Cincinnati selected Sanu in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft, with the No. 83 overall pick out of Rutgers.
