Arizona State Finally Getting Healthy As Season Opener Approaches

The Arizona State Sun Devils have been rocked by the injury bug this offseason, losing several key cogs on both offense and defense. Players dropped sporadically, and several important guys- such as Omar Bolden, T.J. Simpson and Brandon Magee- will be out for the season. With the opener just a little over one week away, though, it seems that the Sun Devils are finally getting healthy.

Running back Deantre Lewis returned to the team late last week after a gun shot incident sidelined him last season. He is working his way back into the running back rotation, which is good news for Sun Devil fans who saw him bust out explosive runs last year (including a huge touchdown run against Oregon).

A few other key players should be back soon after dealing with minor injuries. Running back Cameron Marhsall dealt with an ankle issue and is slated to return to practice. Meanwhile, receiver Gerell Robinson, who has missed over a week with a knee sprain, plans to return to the team sometime this week.

More important than these reports is the fact that no other Sun Devil has hurt himself significantly over the past week. The team is finally starting to get healthy, which bodes well as their Sept. 1st season opener against UC-Davis draws closer.
