A: "I feel like I've been playing pretty good. I'm trying to get back into the swing of things after missing all last year. I learned a lot from having to sit out all last year and I'm excited to come in and get to come on the field."
Q: "Speaking of the knee, how does it feel right now?"
A: "I'm pretty much at normal right now. I'm about back to 100%. It's not even in my mind though. It can't be when you're running around out here at practice."
Q: "Is it tougher mentally or physically to come out everyday to practice?"
A: "Mentally. You've got to come out here everyday with your mind right. If not, you'll get embarrassed. You've got to be ready to go."
Q: "What's it like to replace last year's outstanding linebacker group of Siler, Everett, and Crum?
A: "It's hard. We come out here everyday and hear about how we aren't anywhere near as good as them, so that builds us up to get better. We're all excited about the opportunity."
Q: "What's it like to play with the talent at your position of Brandon Spikes and Dustin Doe?"
A: "They're great. Brandon is crazy; he made some big plays for the defense today that helped us out, the same with Dustin too. They're helping me out a lot and we're going to be real good."
