Potter made four appearances in the 2020 season. However, he has yet to receive any snaps this season.
Depending on the outcome of Potter’s recovery, he may be eligible for a medical exemption for this season. It would be extremely unfortunate if he lost an entire year of eligibility due to an unexpected surgery. We wish Potter a speedy recovery from his eye injury.
