Fans in Indianapolis were expecting big things out of Parris Campbell last season, and understandably so, as the franchise used a second-round pick on him in the 2019 Draft.

Despite showing flashes of potential, two separate injuries — a hamstring strain and broken foot — unfortunately derailed 23-year-old wide receiver’s rookie season, as he was limited to just seven games (three starts).

However, word out of Colts camp suggests that Campbell is fully healthy and ready to earn the No. 3 wideout spot behind TY Hilton and rookie Michael Pittman Jr. The latest buzz suggests that the Ohio State product will spend the majority of his time in the slot, where he’s clearly the most comfortable.

It goes without saying that Campbell is a player who benefitted from the extended delay of preseason workouts, as he was given extra time to rest up and rebuild his speed and strength. Don’t be surprised if the former Buckeye bursts onto the scene in a big way as an NFL sophomore.
