Chicago Bears linebacker Leonard Floyd, who has been slowed by injuries in his first two seasons, says he will be healthy for the start of training camp.

The 26-year-old Floyd injured his right knee last November and was lost for the season.

"I feel great," Floyd said. "I've been up here (at Bears headquarters) the whole offseason, working hard, trying to get back in shape, trying to get my leg right so I can be ready for the season. I'm ready to get to training camp, put the pads on and see how I do."

Floyd, selected by the Bears with the ninth overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft out of Georgia, was expected to be an impact player, but also has sustained head and neck injuries.

Floyd has played in 22 of a possible 32 games in his first two seasons and has shown he could be a real force if he stays healthy, making a total of 67 tackles, including 11.5 sacks -- seven in his rookie season.
