Utah State Aggies can rejoice! Starting quarterback Chuckie Keeton -- and national treasure -- took to his Instagram to announce that he is back and ready to go for this upcoming season:

7 months ago what I thought was a tragedy happened to me. With the grace of God I stand today a new person in several different aspects. I have been CLEARED today for action and can only thank God for his grace and mercy on myself and my family. "Behold, I am Jehovah, the God of all flesh: is there anything too hard for me?" Let's roll #aggienation

Keeton tore his ACL and MCL against BYU back on Oct. 4 when he took a hit early in the first quarter. According to all plans Keeton is right on track, because Utah State head coach Matt Wells said in January that Keeton would be cleared for June workout.

Here we are six weeks before June and Keeton is saying that he is cleared, and it seems more and more likely that Keeton will be 100 percent when they take on Tennessee to open the season. The Aug. 31 opener is just about 11 months away and with the way medicine has improved exponentially in regards to torn ACL meaning Keeton could be back to his old athletic self everyone has become accustomed to watching.

Getting Keeton back in the lineup and healthy for the 2014 season instantly makes Utah State a contender to win the Mountain West.
