Bud Dupree, Titans' edge rusher, said that he did not feel like himself again until the end of last season. This was just over a year ago, after tearing his ACL in a game against the Bengals on Dec. 2, 2020. It was his last game with the Steelers.
He anticipates that he will be back to his former self in 2022.
Dupree stated Tuesday that his confidence was at a new level. Source: Emma Healy, The Tennessean. "That's how it is to play the game, having confidence at another level.
Dupree stated, "Your mind tells you one thing, but you body is telling it another."
Dupree was in only 11 games, making just 17 tackles and three passes in his first season as a Titans player. Before his knee injury, Dupree had 19.5 sacks during his 27 final Steelers games.
Chuck Smith, known as Dr. Rush, continues to train him. Rush."
Dupree stated that the focus of this offseason was to get my mobility back in both my knee and my bent back in my stance. These were the things that were essential before the injury. But you have to continue doing them coming back to retrain your brain.
