Q: What is your confidence level going for Thursday, think you can go?
A: We will see, at this point, I got in there a little bit. I’m not going to say yes or no, that’s Coach Marrone’s call--but well talk and see. I honestly don’t even know, so we will see and we’ll talk about it. 

Q: Your last Thursday night game went pretty well with that big interception; do you think you can have two of them?

A: Yeah it went pretty good, every year is a new year though. This is a new year, so we will see.

Q: Might this be the best you felt?

A: Yeah, I think it’s more of just heading in the right direction, like I’ve said all along. I’ve been completely honest. It’s getting there, this is something that is chronic and so it takes a while. Each time you have to see, one day you might feel great, then you might have a set back and it might get a little achy on you, but it’s headed in the right direction. Its Coach Marrone, I have to talk to him. I don’t know what the plan is so we’ll see.

Q: So the next step would be where you can try it out on game day?

A: I guess, I don’t even know the next step. I have to talk to Coach Marrone and see. It is really his call. He makes those calls, so I have to talk to him and see where it goes.

Q: Is there an eagerness to get out there?

A: Yeah, this is what you do. You don’t want to not be out there, but at the same time you want to make sure you’re good when you go out there. It’s your resume what you do out there, so yeah, of course I miss the game. This is what you do and you appreciate it. Definitely want to get out there.

Q: It’s got to be pretty tedious out there being on the practice field and not having a game at the end right?

A: Yeah, exactly. The best part of it is the games on Sunday.
