Q: Do you expect to be out there Sunday?
A: Yeah, definitely. I agree with what he said.
Q: Tell us how it felt?
A: Yeah, I do feel like I’m back as far as just my body-wise. Now the rest is just mental; getting out there.
Q: What is the level of excitement that you’re going to be playing?
A: A lot of excitement. This is what I’ve always wanted to do anyways from day one. Now we’re here and I finally get to go play, so I’m excited.
Q: How do you react to all the people who accused you of sitting out?
A: I don’t, honestly. That’s part of this game, that’s a part of the NFL. People are going to critique and give their opinion. I’m fine with that. I know what I stand for, I’m confident in myself and it is what it is.
Q: What do you expect from yourself on Sunday?
A: Effort. My first time being out there, just going to give it all I’ve got. I understand the position I’m in due to my injury that I have a lot to catch up. Just going to give effort wherever I can help the team is where I’m going to go.
Q: Did you understand Coach’s decision to keep you out of the game Thursday?
A: I did. When he explained it to me, that’s one thing I will give Coach Marrone, he definitely took me aside and explained everything to me. His thought process, so hat’s off to him for that. I understood, after he explained it to me. As a competitor you want to be out there, so I understand.
