Q: Did you guys get on Frank Summers at all because you knew it was one of his only shots at a touchdown?
A: Yeah we told Frank he’s only got one chance to make this play work for us to be able to keep it in. He did a great job. He did exactly how it was drawn up and he’s a very powerful and explosive runner, so he was able to move the pile and able to get his first touchdown.

Q: How much do you welcome the bye week to heal up even more?
A: Yeah, just give another week, we can let it rest and continue to heal. It’s definitely getting better; it’s going to feel good not to play with the brace son for the remainder of the season.

Q: How much is it physical and how much is it mental fatigue for you guys?
A: We’ve been going at it for a long time, so it’s going to be good for some guys to just get away and refresh. Come back and we’re going to try to finish this season strong. The biggest thing is when you have this break is guys just have to be smart. We don’t want guys popping up in the media for anything negative. I’m pretty sure we have a great group of guys that are going to be smart on this break.

Q: How much of it is time off and how much is it work?

A: Nah I’m taking time off. I’m spending time with my family, my nephew and go see my daughter. I might look at a little bit of film, but it definitely won’t be a ton because the last thing you want to do is fry your brain looking at so much considering how much time we have to prepare for the Falcons.
