The bye week couldn’t have come at a better time for us. It’s a chance for guys to get a break from the physical aspects of the game and a very important mental break.
As for me—I am officially off IR, but I’m not sure if I’ll be out there this week.
Am I ready? Well, I've been getting in some really hard workouts lately, but there's nothing like playing in an actual game. The only way you're going to get ready for a game is playing in games, so I'm as good as I can be from working out but without playing or competing.
I’m definitely relieved and excited to get back on the field.
This is the time of year when you want to be thinking about how you can raise your game, not just maintain it. I do believe I can help our defense do that.
You've got to crank it up a notch at this time of the season. It's like the season really starts right now.
