RB Andre Brown

Q: Tell us about your injury and how you are progressing:

A: When they told me that I ruptured my Achilles, I never heard of someone rupturing their Achilles and coming back full strength. We have good doctors out here. I feel pretty good, and I'm back out there running and having fun.

Q: What are you doing right now to help facilitate your comeback?

A: Basically just running. A couple months ago, I thought it wouldn't happen. Now, I'm out there running and playing football again. I'm enjoying every minute of being out there.

Q: In the spring, I think you and the coaches both said it wasn't going to happen:

A: Yes, in the spring my foot wasn't as strong as we wanted it to be. Then, as mini-camp came, I felt stronger and I made a couple cuts. I started feeling better. When training camp got here, I made some cuts and it was great. I felt good about it.

Q: Is it great like normal or is it great like great for after my injury?

A: It's just great. Let's just use great.

Q: Do you think about your injury?

A: No, I don't. Other than icing it after practice, that's probably all that I think about it.

Q: If you and Ware are both healthy, could the screen passes become a big part of the offense?

A: I'm pretty sure it will. I'm just going into this year with the coaches wanting me to be a role player, whether it's on special teams, or third downs, or catching screens, I'm just happy to be playing football again. I'm going to take advantage of every opportunity they give me. I'm going to go out there and make it work.

Q: Do you like kickoffs?

A: Yeah, I do. It's another shot for me to make some plays.

Q: How much have you done returning kickoffs in the past?

A: I've done kickoff returns in college. I did it through high school. I'm comfortable back there and I'm deep, so I'm going to make a play.

Q: What do you bring out there to kickoff returns?

A: I'm a little faster out there. I'll be able to make a couple moves and a couple cuts, and let's see what happens.
