Q: How is it to be back?
A: It just felt good to be out with my men and be one of the guys again. Being off to the side is not what I look to do here, so it felt good to be out there.
Q: What's the best line that you've heard from one of these guys in the last week or so?
A: The best line? Well Richie (Seubert) was giving me a hard time and we all see how that worked out for him so I think they have all backed off since then.
Q: Are you going to practice tonight?
A: I don't know. I don't know what their plan is. You're going to have to ask Coach Coughlin that. He and Dr. Ronnie Barnes have me on a schedule.
Q: Is this injury the kind of thing where you get a warning of some kind of tweaking or pain before it swells up again, if it even will?
A: It didn't give me much of a warning last time. So, I'm just going to keep my fingers crossed and I know that we're aware of it and I think that even though I did practice today, I didn't go nuts. So I think we're being cautious with that and I think that's smart.
Q: Do you think you'll have to manage this for awhile?
A: I hope it's something that once I get into practice, I won't even be thinking about it. I think that would be ideal.
Q: How did it feel when you were all working together? Did it feel a little rusty?
A: No, it felt fine. I think years from now I'll still be able to snap to Eli and it'll be like old times. That felt fine, the exchange was fine and just being out there. I've been doing this a long time so it comes back pretty quick.
Q: What about Whimper?
A: I've played with him a little bit in the Spring and even last year so I think he does a good job. He's playing a lot of positions right now and moving around a lot so I think he's handled it pretty well.
