ASJ missed the majority of the season, with his shoulder injury, but that did not stop him from improving on the areas that he could. It was good to see ASJ back on the field again, last Sunday. He played pretty well considering he had not been on the field in 9 games. He did have a dropped pass, in the end zone, but as he continues to practice, those types of drops should be avoided.
“Despite missing nine games with a shoulder injury, Tampa Bay Buccaneers second-year tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins says he’s a better player now than he was when he was first injured. The long layoff, Seferian-Jenkins, is what allowed him to get better. “It’s unfortunate that I wasn’t able to play, but the good thing is I was really able to learn how to practice like a professional, like Vincent Jackson,” Seferian-Jenkins said, referring to the Bucs Pro Bowl wide receiver.” “Seferian-Jenkins, who returned to action last week and caught three passes for 31 yards in the Bucs 23-19 victory over the Falcons, said he focused primarily on route-running during his down time.” -Reported by Roy Cummings
