Maurice Leggett is apparently a quick healer.
Just a few months removed from a torn Achilles tendon, the Bombers standout defender clearly demonstrated a bounce in his step with this impressive dunk.

Leggett suffered a torn Achilles on Oct. 14 – that’s less than five months ago – and he’s already dunking. The average recovery time is between 11 and 12 months but if this video is any indication, he could be back much earlier.
That’s also pretty good hops for a guy listed at 5-foot-11.
The 31-year-old was in the midst of another excellent season, recording 50 tackles, three sacks, three forced fumbles, three interceptions, one of which he took back for a touchdown, and a 97-yard punt return touchdown in 13 games.
A pending free agent in February, it looks like Leggett will be back on the field sooner than originally thought – no matter where he lands.
