Potential NFL Comeback Player of the Year candidates come along each season. It is for athletes who miss time due to injury or other reasons. However, some athletes are potential candidates if they were suspended and have made up for that ill wrong. Some of these athletes have missed significant time and are on this list for a second time. We will see some of the potential candidates that could be eligible.

Breece Hall, New York Jets

Last season Breece Hall performed at the level of offensive rookie of the year. He suffered a torn ACL and a minor meniscus injury back in October. In seven games he recorded 80 carries for 463 yards and four touchdowns. Along with his rushing feature, he added 18 receptions for 218 yards and one touchdown. The New York Jets General Manager says that Hall is in a good place following surgery and rehab of his injury. For instance, many believe that Hall should be good to go in week 1. With more games under his belt, he is a prime candidate for NFL Comeback Player of the Year. Adding the likes of Aaron Rodgers and more wide receivers. Hall will be in the right environment to succeed.

Matthew Stafford, Los Angeles Rams

Matthew Stafford was placed on injured reserve in week 13 after suffering a neck injury. Once the Rams saw that the playoffs weren’t in their sights the team decided to sit Stafford. Stafford has suffered a variety of injuries throughout his career. He just turned 35 but he can not be counted out to win his second comeback player of the year award. Two years ago he had his most productive passing season. Threw for 4,886 yards, 41 touchdowns, and 17 interceptions and won the Super Bowl that season. The real question is can he replicate that success?

Shaquille Leonard, Indianapolis Colts

In a short period of time, Shaquille Leonard has established himself as the league’s best linebacker. That recognition alone should catapult him to the top as a potential NFL comeback player of the year candidate. Back in November, the Indianapolis Colts placed Leonard on injured reserve. In this situation, Leonard faced a setback with his back injury that required a second surgery. However, heading into this season Leonard says he feels a lot better this off-season. The Colts will take their time with Leonard so he can be full-go all season long. As long as Leonard is as close to 100% as possible he should still be a force in the NFL.

Lamar Jackson, Baltimore Ravens

Lamar Jackson has had some injury history during his career. One could believe that he is the leader in the clubhouse for NFL comeback player of the Year. If Jackson can stay healthy all season long he very well might be the award winner. Jackson missed the last five games of the season with a PCL injury. Skeptics wondered about the severity of his injury due to contract negations. In April the Baltimore Ravens and Jackson agreed on a new $260 million extension. With new offensive weapons and a shift in the offensive philosophy. Jackson could be primed for yet another MVP season.
