NFL | Teams could Pursue Couch

ESPN.com's Len Pasquarelli reports free agent QB Tim Couch (Packers) recently underwent Lasik eye surgery. Couch has not thrown a pass in a regular-season game since Dec. 28, 2003, against the Cincinnati Bengals. Couch had a throwing session Wednesday, July 20, and if that is any indication of his recovery from shoulder surgery, an NFL team may look to sign him. "He's young, he had a great surgeon, he's got a great body, and has been pretty [diligent] in his rehabilitation," said Lisa Kearns, a physical therapist and exercise physiologist for SportFit Rehab and Training. "I would think that, with the way he's going, it's just a matter of a few more weeks until he's far enough along to demonstrate that he can play in the league," Kearns said. "I mean, he really has been problem-free." More importantly, Couch is also pain free. Couch registered just more than 100 passes at the workout yesterday. Pasquarelli's opinion is it would be surprising if Couch is not ready to work out sometime in the next month. And just as surprising, maybe, if he is not on an NFL roster at some juncture of the 2005 season.
