Bills DT Marcell Dareus

Thursday, September 13, 2012

On his return back to Buffalo and how it feels to be back in the facility and back on the practice field with his teammates:

I got back here today and received warm greetings from all the players.  I got caught up with everything and got acclimated with the game plan.  I am focused.  I know I have a lot of things going on off the field, but I am here and ready to play.  I have 60-more brothers here and ready to support me as well.

On his message to the fans and supporters who have reached to the Dareus family at this difficult time:

Thank you for all the support.  Right now is a tough time for me and my family.  But thank you very much for the support because I truly really need it at this time.  I can't express how I am feeling right now, but I will go out on the field and give it my all on Sunday.

On his plans for the rest of the week: I plan to work hard here on the field.  But I will continue to keep in contact with my family back home and make sure everyone is ok down there.  I am ready to continue to prepare for this week's game with my family here.  Then I will go home and be with my family.
