Justyn Ross Addresses Health Concerns
In other Chiefs-related news, one of Patrick Mahomes’ rookie pass-catchers, former Clemson receiver Justyn Ross, spoke to Kansas City media for the first time since signing with the Chiefs on May 2.
During his press conference at rookie minicamp, Ross spoke about his health concerns, which included a congenital fusion in his spine in 2020 that sidelined him for the 2020 season, and a fracture in his foot that hampered his play during the 2021 season and the pre-draft process.
“I feel good,” Ross said when asked how close he feels he is to being fully healthy.
If Ross can stay healthy, then the sky is the limit for someone that as a freshman at Clemson was the top wide receiver on a team that had Tee Higgins, Hunter Renfrow, and Amari Rodgers. That’s why he was considered the biggest steal among the undrafted rookies in 2022 by Bleacher Report.
For Kansas City, signing Ross made all the sense in the world. Ross can compete for a spot on the roster, and will do so without having any draft capital/a large contract attached to him. That in hand makes him easy to cut ties with if injuries start to appear again or if he just doesn’t perform to expectation. However, if Ross plays to his full potential, then the Chiefs have found themselves a diamond in the rough.
Ross on His Expectations for Rookie Year
One of Ross’ former Clemson teammates, receiver Cornell Powell, was drafted in the fifth round of the 2021 NFL Draft by Kansas City. While Ross said Powell didn’t recruit him to join the Chiefs, he did say Powell has been helping him with the transition from college football to the NFL. As for why Ross chose to sign with the Chiefs, he gave two reasons, one of which was quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the other being head coach Andy Reid.
Now that Ross has joined the defending AFC West champions he has clear expectations for himself for his rookie year.
“Just get my foot in the door and make plays,” Ross said.
The Clemson product might be focused on the grind as he enters his first year in the league, but that doesn’t mean he’s not aware of how much he has overcome to get to this point.
“It felt good, man,” Ross said of his feelings of being on the field for rookie minicamp in Kansas City. “Like you said, with what I had going on [with my injuries], you never knew if I was gonna be able to be out here at all, period. So it felt real good.”
