Crezdon Butler Ready For Redskins After Injury Frustrations

When newly acquired Washington Redskins cornerback Crezdon Butler takes the field Sunday in his team's season opener, it will complete a year-long recovery from an ankle injury that was not easy for the former Arizona Cardinal to overcome.

"It was very difficult," Butler told the Washington D.C. media Monday. "Playing the position I play, I need my speed. That was the first thing that went when I broke my ankle. I was like, man I don’t have speed no more. But I rehabbed and it took me a year to fully get back. I’m ready."

On Saturday, the Redskins signed the 6'0, 191-pound corner after he was cut by the Cardinals, a team he played just one game for after dislocating and tearing ligaments in his ankle during last year's season opener. The injury landed him on Arizona's injured reserve list.
