Colorado wide receiver Laviska Shenault is close to 100% after under going a core muscle surgery after the Combine.

In a letter sent to all 32 NFL teams from his doctor, Dr. William Meyers, who specializes in core muscle injuries, Shenault is now within a few days of a return to full health.

“I watched Laviska go through regular football drills yesterday at 5 1/2 weeks postop, and he looked terrific,” Meyers wrote. “I believe by April 25, 2020, he will be at 100 percent for full football activities.”

The letter comes day before the 2020 NFL draft.

As a junior last season, Shenault gained 925 yards from scrimmage and scored six total touchdowns. He had 1,011 yards on 86 catches as a sophomore.

It is now expected that the former Buff star will be ready for rookie mini-camp, if it happens due to COVID-19.
