On decision to return: "I missed my teammates. I missed the fans. I felt like I wanted to play football."

On first practice: "Practice was great today. I felt good."

On how difficult a decision it was: "Very, very. A lot of factors went into it."

On if he'll play Sunday night in Dallas: "That's Coach's decision."

On if he held out to miss training camp: "I've done two-a-days for 14 years and never had a problem. It wasn't that."
