Pre-Season All-American Tackle Joe Thomas talks about his knee and a lot more from inside Camp Randall Stadium during media day.

Joe Thomas

On how his knee is feeling so far

I think I'm doing really well so far. I kind of had an idea of where I wanted to be when camp opened up and I think I've matched that so far.

On if his time table has changed in regards to playing in the first game:

I'm not really trying to look forward to much because I don't want to set myself up to be disappointed if I don't make it. Right now it feels great and I'm looking forward to hitting for the first time tonight

On how the new guys on the offensive line are doing

I think all of our younger guys have done well so far. I've been very impressed with the improvements they've made since I played with them last fall.

On any regrets getting injured while playing defense I have no regrets. I'm a football player and football injuries happen. I was just happy to be out there to help my team win.

On goals for this season

Really my only goal is to have a better year than I did last year. It starts in camp and it starts right now.

On being a Playboy All-American and the photo shot

That was a great experience. I had a great time. All the guys I met were really awesome guys. I made some friends out there and it was just a really fun weekend.
