    Throw in some rear delt/mid-trap work and you should be good.

    No. They get some work with cables rows, but it's not direct. Deads don't work that area.

    You should be for awhile provided you progressively increase the volume and/or training load.

    Only you can answer that. I don't know what your recovery capabilities, sleep quality, nutrition, stress levels, etc.
