New York Jets safety LaRon Landry is ''ahead of schedule'' in his rehabilitation from Achilles and heel injuries, and hopes to be healthy for the start of training camp next month.
Landry, signed to a one-year deal in March, says Wednesday that he spent much of the offseason working on his own in Arizona and receiving ''advanced'' non-surgical treatments to heal the injuries that were ''more of like a bone issue,'' and cut short last season with the Washington Redskins. He says his Achilles is ''totally healed'' and ''I've been ahead of schedule.''
Landry is with the team for mandatory minicamp, but staying mostly on the sideline during practices. He has done some agility drills and felt good, and expects to be ''ready physically and mentally'' for training camp.
