Courtland Sutton is nearing a return to the field after tearing his ACL early in the 2020 campaign.

The Denver Broncos wide receiver said the "game plan" is to fully participate in training camp in preparation for the upcoming season.

"(My knee) feels really good," Sutton said. "To be at the stage that I'm at right now, post-surgery, and to be able to go out and do what I do and it feels the way it does, it gives me hope and promise for the future because I'm only going to continue to attack rehab as I have.

"Even into the season. Just continuing to make sure that I'm taking care of my temple. Making sure that my body's right so I can go out there and perform with the boys."

The 2018 second-round pick suffered the injury in Week 2 last year, ending a promising campaign. Sutton was coming off a breakout 2019 in which he caught 72 passes for 1,112 yards and six touchdowns, earning his first Pro Bowl nod.

Upon his return to the field, the 25-year-old will lead an exciting young group of receivers in Denver that also includes Jerry Jeudy, Tim Patrick, and KJ Hamler.

"We have weapons in every category that you're looking for," he said. "Speed, size, catching ability, route running - I feel like we're pretty diverse in our room. I was excited watching those dudes have the success that they had this past season. I'm even more excited to be able to be in there with them this upcoming season."
