Q: How is your knee?
A: I got most of the swelling down so now I am just working on flexing and being able to do certain things. I am not worried about it. I will be back when I need to be back.
Q: Are you surprised you haven't played?
A: I'm very surprised. We got the MRI and it came back negative but those things get a little tricky when it is a swelling deal. I think things are good now and we have a bye that could not have come at a better time. I get this week off and we will go from there.
Q: Does it ever get easier to have to sit out a game?
A: It will never get easier to sit out a game. You have your team out there fighting and scratching as hard as they can fight and scratch for 60 minutes and you want to be out there helping. That is the hard thing about it because you have your teammates and you want to be there for them. It sucks when you are hurt.
Q: You have been through this before, is it still in your mind?
A: No question about it and I will not do that again.
Q: How do you know when you are fully ready to come back?
A: Just like I knew then that I wasn't fully ready but I still went out there and tried to help the team the best that I could. It only hurt me in the end. I can bet my bottom dollar that it won't happen again.
Q: What did the MRI show?
A: The MRI was negative. Everything was good. It didn't have any moment and the test all came back good. It was a little pain on the MCL. It probably got hit with a helmet straight to it but that is about it.*
