On getting back into the rotation:
“It’s about taking reps now, just hearing everything. A big part of playing on Saturday’s, after you’ve been in the huddle a million times, just being in the huddle, around the ball. Our practice tempo is fast enough, it gets you in shape. So it’s more about taking these reps.”
On what it’s like to be back:
I think the bye week really helped. The first couple days, you’re technically full go, but you’re still in the swing of things, it’s like the first day of camp out there. But once you get in a drive, a two-minute deal, where its fire, fire, fire, when you get through that, you know you’re back. You know you can do everything.
On what he brings to the table:
“I add experience. The playing time I’ve had over five years of being here will help. I know the offense; coming back for the second year, I really have a good understanding, so I can help guys. I’m pretty familiar with all the positions, so I can help in the huddle. A big part of being a senior in the huddle is calming everybody down.”
On not losing his instincts:
“I never really lost them, but a big part of not losing them is when you’re injured you stay in there mentally. You listen to all the snaps, you put yourself in position. You may not have run the same route as the receiver did, but you need to see where he made his adjustments.
