CB Prince Amukamara updates his injury status.

Q:  How’s the ankle feel? You’re out of the boot?
A:  Yeah, I’m out of the walking boot. I’ve been rehabbing, walking better, and it feels a lot better than it did last week. It’s only been six days, so we’re still taking it day-by-day.

Q:  Is there still swelling?
A:  Not a lot of swelling, but the trainers told me to not let that steer me the wrong way or confuse me because it’s still painful, and like I said, it’s still progressing.

Q:  We heard it was based a lot on pain tolerance?
A:  Exactly.

Q:  Is it still very painful?
A:  I haven’t been able to run, but walking is good, and getting on my toes is good, and I couldn’t even do that three days ago so I’m glad that I’m progressing.

Q: Do you know where you stand right now in terms of your injury?
A:  The doctor was impressed with how quick I’ve been improving. He said that it’s still a day-by-day thing, and I need to start running and practicing first, and I haven’t done that yet, so after I get the ok from the trainers we’ll go from there.

Q: Are you hoping to get the okay before the Dallas game?
A: For sure. I hope that they make the best decision for me and the team.

Q: Thoughts on the extended break after the Cowboys game:
A: I’m thinking Week 2 is more promising, but I want Week 1 to be promising as well. They haven’t told me yes, they haven’t told me no.
