Q: How are you feeling?
A: Iím feeling great man so weíll see how it goes on Sunday.
Q: Do you expect to be out there?
A: Iím taking it day-by-day. We got practice tomorrow so weíll see how that goes and look forward from there.
Q: What unique challenges do both C.J Beathard and Jimmy Garoppolo bring?
A: They both play quarterback so we know one thing, theyíre going to try to move the ball, theyíre going to try to make good throws. I think itís just disrupt them off the spot of the ball and make it uncomfortable for them.
Q: How difficult has it been to watch whatís going on while being out due to injury?
A: You never want to be on the outside looking in when all of your brothers are out there playing. But it was out of my control, nothing I can do about it. All I could do is just get healthy and now Iím back.
Q: After never missing a game up until this year, does it give you an appreciation to being on the field?
A: Oh man, yeah. I was thinking the other day, some of the guys in the building, some of the former Giant players that have been in here and I could see from their point of view, their perspective that dang, if they could just play another game, you know what I mean? In my mind, I was like dang, is this how it feels to not play and it felt weird to me. Iím just glad and Iím fortunate that it wasnít worse than what it could have been. Iím just glad to be back and enjoy my time and enjoy my teammates.
Q: What do you think about the reports this week that coach is losing the players?
A: Honestly, I feel like all of the guys are in high spirits right now. Everybody is behind Coach McAdoo. So, everything that you guys hear or whatever comes out, I have no comment on that one.
Q: Was the issue addressed yesterday? Did the players talk about it at all?
A: No, I mean if somebody wanted to come forth and say who said anything, come forth and say it. If not, it doesnít really mean anything to us.
Q: Will a win help take care of some of these feelings?
A: A win helps take care of a lot of things. Itís been a while since weíve had a win, so it would be nice to get a little win and try to get on a roll.
