It’s been eight and a half months since Seahawks defensive end Chris Clemons tore the ACL and meniscus in his left knee during Seattle’s wildcard game against Washington.

That Clemons is set to make his 2013 debut on Sunday is another example of how much quicker players are returning from reconstructive knee surgeries that previously came with longer rehabilitation timetables. It’s also a boon for a defense that has allowed just 10 points through two games and now has the services of a player who totaled 33.5 sacks over the last three seasons.

Bob Stelton and Dave Grosby share additional thoughts on Clemons’ return in the video below.
