All I know is I'm working hard to get back and help this team. And I'm going to continue to work hard, no matter how long it takes, for my leg to get better. Then when it does get better, I'll be fine.
I want the fans to keep supporting me. I'm a part of this team. Maybe you haven't seen me participating in the games or making a big play like you're expecting me to, but don't look down on me because I'm not playing. I'm still a human being; I'm still a person. Injuries happen, just look at our team now. I just want them to be positive about the situation – for this team and for myself for the future. I'm just trying to prepare myself mentally and physically so that when I do come back I can help this team.
I can tell that people are disappointed that I'm out. People will call and say they can't wait to see me play. And I'm thinking in my head that I can't wait to see myself play. I haven't played since the Philadelphia game and it gets frustrating at times. I just try my best to stay focused and maintain a positive attitude. I enjoy coming in and working hard every day and laughing with my teammates and letting them know that when I'm ready I'll be back out there.
At the worst, the pain in my leg was just something that you can't even describe. A lot of people will think that a strain isn't all that tough. But until you have an injury you don't know. When people don't know what injuries are exactly they tend to think ‘oh it's just this, it's just that.' But they really don't know.
I just look at this as if it's just another test for myself. Mentally for me to come into the National Football League and have a chance to play at such a high level, me being injured seems like a test to see if I can take it. Can I handle the pressure and everything else that comes with this injury? The main thing, again, is to stay positive and stay around my teammates and show and let them know that I'm here. When I do get well, I'm going to be very helpful.
I'm not one to really speak on what I'm going to do when I get back. I'm just going to go out there and show it. I'm not going to say ‘I'm going to do this, I'm going to do that.' I'm not that type of guy. I'd rather just go out there and show it and help my team the best way that I can.
I'm a tough player. I know I'm small-caliber, but I'm a tough player. I give 110 percent in my routes. I have an ability to catch the ball and turn short passes into long passes. I'm able to go the distance to help my team. That's what I want to do. I want to prepare myself so that when I do step on the field I won't have any problems. I think I can make a real great impact. When I do come back I think I can be very helpful.
My brother (Santana) told me to just stay positive and not get down. There are a lot of things running through your head that could get you down, but that's not helping your injury at all. He just said to stay positive and continue to work hard every day. My parents also always called to make sure I was okay. They know how I am – I can be very hard on myself. Sometimes I'll push myself to do more when I should be relaxing and just letting it be. My girlfriend is here with me also. She tries her best to console me and let me know that things are going to be okay.
I'm a lot closer to playing than I have been in the last two months. Thursday (Nov. 16) was my first full practice. I was limited on drills but I participated. I felt pretty good the next day. This is the best I've felt in a long time.
Everyone wants to know if I'm going to be back for the Jacksonville game. I really don't know. I'm working really hard every day to try get there. My plan is to be able to come back, be healthy and help this team. That's all I wanted to do since I got here. I'm just trying to progress every day.
