DT Linval Joseph


Q: Last year it was cornerback?…**
A: Corners, linebackers, D-lineman.

Q: The year before that were wide receivers?A: It happens every year.

Q: Do you think it's concentrated now on us?
A: No, I can't say that. It's their opportunity to step up and show what they have and we just have to make the best of our situation.

Q: Do you also think hey it's August?
A: I can't even think like that. It's one day at a time. Hopefully, we'll get one guy back or whatever how it goes.

Q: At least it's now and not Week 1?….
A: Yes. You can still plan and fix things up.

Q: How bad do you feel for Sean?
A: I feel bad because we just played the game three days ago. He's [Shaun Rogers] my roommate. We talk all the time. To have a blood cot, it's serious. You cut your leg off, a lot of things can happen with that. Thank God it's not a blood clot and hopefully everything will work out with him.
Q: Was he complaining about it in the room?
A: His leg hurt from a leg whip. But you never thought it was going to be a blood clot.|

Q: Did you get back here before he started to complain?
A: I think it was the practice before the game. It hurt the same. He just wanted to check it out and see what was wrong with it.

Q: Do you think it got worse on the plane?
A: I think the plane had an effect on it.

Q: Has Marvin been complaining about the back at all?
A: Everybody has been complaining about their back because of the beds in the dorm are fairly hard. My back has been hurting too. I think it's just the bed. We'll see. Marvin went to the doctor today. I don't know what's going to happen to him or what's going on with him. I'll pray for him and hopefully it's just the bed and we'll go from there.

Q: Do you think that's the reason why so many guys had back issues?
A: Yes, I do.

Q: He got his leg whipped in practice before the game?
A: I think so.
Q: How ready is Markus Kuhn if he had to step in?
A: Every guy is a snap away. He's young. He's learning and if he had to step, he's going to have to step in. We'll see. It's going to be a good opportunity to see him, Dwayne, Craig Marshall. So this practice and this game is going to mean a lot for our team.

Q: How about Dwayne Hendricks? Is he one of the stronger guys in your bunch?
A: Dwayne is sneaky. He's got a lot of sneaky strength. He's been insistent for a couple of years and he knows what's going on and I'm glad he can get an opportunity this year. ![](
