WIDE RECEIVER JAMES HARDY
PM Practice – August 7, 2008
On his excitement level before his first NFL game:
I mean, it's very high. I still, at this point, don't know if I'm going to be able to participate on the offense, I'm a little sore but hopefully I'll be able to.
On how he feels about his progress in camp:
I just wanted to come out and get better each and every practice, and watch film and just grow as an individual, and follow Lee's (Evans) lead. He helps me each and every practice along with Trent (Edwards), and I just wanted to progress each and every practice and I think I've done that thus far.
On if his hamstring injury has been frustrating for him:
Oh yeah, it's definitely frustrating, but it's something I can't control. All I can do is just listen to the trainers and get treatment as much as possible, which is something I will do the next couple of days, and hopefully I'll be playing on Saturday.
On taking reps with the first team:
It's huge, it's huge for my confidence. At the same time, it's just at a different level. I'm still a rookie, coming in, haven't played my first game yet, I still have to get adjusted to the speed of the game.
