Brian Kelly has heard the rumblings about defensive end Stephon Tuitt’s appearance. And Kelly said there is nothing to worry about even though the 6-foot-6, 322-pound junior appears to being carry some extra fat right now.
“Look, the kid had a hernia operation,” Kelly said. “He couldn’t do core exercises for over 361/27.months. We had to change his whole summer workout. You know what our guys look like. He looks different because he put on some body fat that our guys don’t normally put on because he couldn’t do some of the workouts our guys do. It wasn’t because he decided to eat Cheetos on the couch and not work out. He had to do a different work out.
“We’re now working really hard to take some of that body fat and bring him down, and he’s doing a nice job. He’s bringing that body fat down.”
