After suffering an incomplete tear of his left pectoral muscle while bench pressing at the NFL Scouting Combine in March, former Ohio State center Billy Price was confident that he would make a full recovery in time to participate in his new team's training camp.
That prophecy came true on Monday, when the Cincinnati Bengals first-round pick tweeted that he was fully cleared to play football again.

Despite his injury, the Bengals selected Price with the No. 21 overall pick in this year's draft, and now they could reap the rewards.
The winner of last year's Rimington Trophy as college football's best center, Price never missed a game in four seasons as a starting offensive lineman for the Buckeyes.
