Photo: Former Ohio State TE Jeff Heuerman, Florida DE Dante Fowler Motivating Each Other Following ACL Tears

Jeff Heuerman and Dante Fowler have a lot in common. 

They both were selected in the 2015 NFL Draft (Heuerman to the Denver Broncos and Fowler to the Jacksonville Jaguars), they're both from Florida, they both played at schools that Urban Meyer coached at (Heuerman at Ohio State, Fowler at Florida) and, unfortunately, they both tore their ACLs during rookie minicamp. 

It appears the former Ohio State tight end and Florida pass rusher are bonding over their similar injuries.

It's always easier to get through something tough when there's someone else motivating you. Here's to Jeff and Dante getting healthy and being better than ever in 2016.
