Ray Graham took a couple hits in practice on Monday. There was some hesitancy afterwards, or maybe a lack of confidence in what his ability might be in taking an injury.
Though he still has a goal of starting in Pitt's opener, which is just 12 days away, he says his next goal is rebuilding that confidence. Not confidence in playing up to game speed, but confidence in just taking a hit. Hits, being tackled, Graham says those are things he wants to see more of.
Here is his full interview following this morning's practice.
