"I felt normal, rusty, but normal. I think everybody felt rusty out there on the first day with pads. But as far as hitting the hole, being aggressive, and lead-blocking, I felt comfortable," he said.
Alstott actually felt good during their OTAs (organized training activities) and was cleared for contact but had to wait over a month until he could really tell he was back to normal.
"I'm ready. Just putting on pads and hitting a little bit satisfied me. I've told everyone that's interviewed me that I'm confident in the way that my neck has come about in the last 6-8 months, as far as the strength and the rehab process goes. Today was a big relief off of my shoulders, as far as going out there and having good contact. I haven't had that ultimate hit yet but it'll come," he added.
Alstott is one of the keys to this season's offense. Alstott can take over any short-yardage work in order to keep new starting running back Charlie Garner from taking a pounding. He's also an additional outlet in the passing game.
