Head coach Cam Cameron and General Manager Randy Mueller addressed the media after the conclusion of the 2007 draft, and not surprisingly a big topic of conversation was the health of first-round pick Ted Ginn Jr., who earlier in the day admitted he would be wearing a protective boot for the next few weeks.
ESPN's John Clayton went as far as reporting that Ginn would be in a boot for six weeks, followed by six weeks of rehab. That total of 12 weeks would bring us to late July, meaning Ginn would miss all the minicamps and might even be in jeopardy of missing the start of training camp.
But while they didn't want to discuss specifics regarding Ginn's injury or a timetable for his return to the playing field, both Cameron and Mueller downplayed the injury.
"We feel good about Ted's foot," Mueller said.
When Cameron and Mueller were asked about whether there were any concerns about Ginn being ready for the start of training camp, Cameron replied: "At no point in time did we feel he would not be ready for the start of training camp."
Ginn clearly won't be taking part in next weekend's minicamp and he's probably a question mark for the June minicamp as well.
