WR Odell Beckham Jr
Postgame vs. Detroit, September 18, 2017
Q: At what point did you think you would be able to play?
A: Just warming up, kind of going through it. You just get out here, you have that feeling. I just wanted to come out and see what I can do. We limited it and it felt good to be able to play again. Itís been a long time, so just kind of getting your feet wet.
Q: Physically how did you feel out there?
A: I felt alright. I donít really know what percentage. Still just that last little bit to gain, but it will come, you know. Another long week of rehab and all of those things. Just stay positive, try to get healthy.
Q: Did you feel like yourself out there? Or did you feel limited?
A: I felt like a little bit of myself, just still not there. Came out and do what I can.
Q: How long do you think it will take until youíre there?
A: I donít know. When are you ever really 100 percent? I donít know.
Q: Did it surprise you that you were in and out in the beginning of the game?
A: Yeah, I mean that was the plan all along. We were on a pitch count and thatís just what it was.
Q: Would you say you came out feeling well?
A: I feel alright. Iím alright. Go home, game ready, come back in tomorrow, watch some film, rehab, prehab, get right, short week, short memory, new game on Sunday.
Q: When did you know you werenít going to be starting tonight?
A: I mean I donít think starting really matters, you know what I mean? You are going to go in if itís not the first play, itís the second play. So, is that really a big deal? I donít think so. It was just a matter of getting in where I am able to get in, try to make the plays when we can and do the best that you can do.
Q: Is there a level of frustration for the offense as a whole with all of the expectations you had for this group?
A: No, I just think we have to get it together. Stay positive. Stay with each other and just get better each and every day. We are only going to go where we take it. So, itís up to us, itís in our hands.
Q: Can you describe what happened on that fourth down play?
A: I dropped the ball.
Q: What was the call there?
A: Curl? Hook? Something like that.
Q: The route was a little bit short of the sticks.
A: Iím just doing what the play was called. So, we ran that route.
Q: Do you expect to be better physically with the ankle next Sunday?
A: Yeah, I mean you have time. I didnít have any setbacks today, so Iíll be able to be proactive and stay on it and get as close to 100 percent as you can. Thatís pretty much all you can do and with that being said, thatís what I am going to do.
Q: I know you were limited, but how much did you think you could do physically?
A: Mentally, I feel like I can do anything. So physically, I donít know how much it really matters. I got my 20-30 plays or whatever it was and just try to make the most of them. We just came up short today.
