Check out what DE Jason Pierre-Paul said to the media this afternoon.

Q: How is your back?
A: My back feels good.

Q: Is that the same injury you had last year?
A: No my muscles just tighten that’s all.

Q:How do you feel about being a starter?
A: Basically I just have to do what I have to do. Coach came up to me with that yesterday and let me know Osi was going to be out so I need to step it up.

Q: Are you ready?
A: Yes. I am going to go out there and do what I have to do to help the team win.  

Q: How is this affecting you?
A: It really doesn’t affect me. I just have to play both sides now. I’m use to it and coach just told me to play more of the right end especially this game so that’s what I have been doing in practice.

Q: Is it frustrating or confusing?
A: Not at all.

Q:How do you feel about playing more?
A:  When I am out there I just have to be in shape and run to the ball every play. If I run to the ball in practice then I will run to the ball in the game.  

Q: Does that help you or hurt you?
A: It helps because you know you have to push yourself a little bit further and go to the ball.  

Q: Are the expectations to high?
A: No because it is all about how you play. I didn’t know I was going to get two sacks but I went out there and played good football. I kept rushing the quarterback and that’s what happened. The expectations are going to be high, I just have to play to my full ability.
