Q: How’s the knee?
A: it’s definitely sore today. We’ll do everything we can to kind of manage that. Take the rest of this week and see what happens. I expect to be out there, I’ll do everything I can to be back out there.

Q: Is there any fear that you can do more damage to it?
A: There’s always that possibility, but I try not to approach it that way. I want to be out there helping my team, help my teammates and do whatever I can to help them. We’ll do whatever we can. The doctors will give me advice, let me know what it is I can do and I’ll continue to put knee braces on and hope that helps. Number one thing is I want to be out there and contribute and help us win games.

Q: You’ve always been a leader on this team, have you always strived to lead by example like you did yesterday?
A: Yeah. What better way to do so. You want guys to step up and make plays for you; you’ve got to do it yourself. That’s just what I try and do. I love this team, I love being a part of this team. The way to show that is to be out there with those guys, competing with them. That’s what I tried to get done yesterday; hopefully I can continue to do so.
