Injured Elliott nearly 100 percent recovered as fall practice looms

STARKVILLE — Robert Elliott says he has been so busy with rehab that he hasn’t had much time to think about the what-ifs involved with the potentially career-altering knee injury he suffered last fall.
“It wasn’t really any frustration,” said Elliott, a rising third-year sophomore, “because it’s like I never really sat out.”
His teammate, friend and fellow rehab-mate, Brandon McRae, isn’t so sure.
“He said a couple of months ago ‘Man, my leg’s still weak. I don’t know if it’s ever going to heal,'” McRae said. “He’s been having the same doubts. I just told him it takes time.”
