Q: Any update on the injury?
A: It’s sore, but it shouldn’t be anything that will keep me out this week. I should be feeling better day-by-day. Just taking it slow, just a little sore right now.

Q: Did you get twisted up in a pile? What happened?
A: I tried to look at it this morning and that’s the only thing I can think of. It happened the play right before we hit (Robert) Woods on the big 30-yard gain because I felt it while I was running down limping. That’s the only time I can think of that’s when it happened. Tried to look at it, but couldn’t really get a good shot at it or see what exactly happened. I know that was the play.

Q: Were you trying to go back in and held out?
A: Starting that second half I wanted to try and give it a go and see how it feels. The biggest thing was trying to keep it loose. I went out there and right before, I told Fred (Jackson) that if I don’t look like myself, come get me out of the game. I just felt like I couldn’t get power, that explosiveness off my leg. Ultimately I just came out of the game because to me I’m not going to put my team in jeopardy of hurting them and also I have to protect myself. The best thing for me to do is to swallow my pride at that moment and let my other guys go in there for me.
