Waddle had ankle surgery in October, so he’s just about back to unrestricted activity already by now. Data does show some temporary declines in game participation in the first post-injury season, but fortunately makes us expect a full return to his pre-injury performance and durability levels. Waddle undoubtedly proved his dedication to coming back strong, as evidenced by his attempt to play in Alabama’s playoff run only 2 months post-surgery. Expect him to bounce back fully without major concerns, especially after he makes it through the 2021 season.
