Jeremy Shockey on his injury.
How do you feel?
I feel better than I did a week ago. It feels sore. Progressing and I'm going to take it one day at a time.
How much do you want to play on Sunday?
I want to play every Sunday. I felt bad I couldn't play last (week). It's the nature of this sport, getting hurt. You have to deal with the injuries. It's the one thing I don't deal with very well. It's getting better every day and hopefully I'll be able to do something this week.
Coach said you were very persuasive this morning when you talked to him. What did you say?
I did everything last week I could to make that game. You lose and you're out. I want to be with that team. I felt bad not making that trip. So I want to do everything I can this week, I told him, to get back and to push it. We'll see how it feels and get an early signal in the week and just move from there.
Q: What are your practice plans for Jeremy Shockey and Rich Seubert?
A: Seubert will practice today, Shockey will be on the side and will hopefully we able to work tomorrow. We'll see.
Q: Is Shockey's ankle a lot better?
A: The swelling is down considerably from what it was last week. He improves each day. We're just going to have to see about that.
Q: I assume he wants to play pretty badly. Has he said anything to you about, ‘Coach, put me in'?
A: He wants to play very badly, yeah. I appreciate that question. That brought me right back down a little bit. Now my adrenaline is a little bit under control.
Q: Which injury led you to put Corey Webster on IR?
A: The combination. It was the combination.
Q: Did he tear or break anything on the hip?
A: No, no. It's a continuous issue that he's had (that) again refocused or resurfaced the other day. The doctors made the decision that he couldn't be at his best out on the field and so the decision was made to go ahead and begin to move towards the procedure.
Q: If Seubert plays at guard and I assume David Diehl would be at left tackle, is that your best five guys?
A: We're going to have to see how Rich is. Rich has not played in awhile. I thought Grey (Reugamer) played well the other night. We're fortunate enough to have the two guys. I think that we'll see throughout the course of the week how Rich is going to come back from a practice and whether or not he's able to turn around and go right again. So we'll just judge that as we go.
