Q: Missed question.
A: Feels great, making progress and thatís the goal, make progress.

Q: How much closer do you feel to being back out there than maybe you did a week ago?
A: I donít know just got to see. Going day by day.

Q: In general, are you encouraged where youíre at in terms of the injury?
A: Most definitely. Just going day by day, trying to get better.

Q: How frustrating has it been to have to be on the sidelines?
A: You never want to be on the sidelines so that speaks for itself right there, but all I can do is get myself right.

Q: Have you been out as Ė like when the injury first happened, is this timeline about what you expected or have you had to kind of be more patient than you initially anticipated?
A: Just being patient, seeing how my body just reacts to all of the rehab and treatments so itís really been day by day to see how I feel.

Q: Weíve seen you play on like one leg before so we know you can play on a lot. Did someone have to tell you that you werenít playing or do you know that this is the best thing for you?
A: Honestly you have to ask coach Shurmur for that one, but all I could do is be out there and when Iím out there healthy and just go from there.

Q: Can you put a percentage at all on your chances of playing on Sunday?
A: You have to ask coach Shurmur on that one.

Q: How about if you had it your way?
A: You still have to ask coach Shurmur on that one.

Q: The fact that you practiced at least partially yesterday, is that a sign that maybe youíre getting closer?
A: Itís progress so thatís a good sign.

Q: How much do you, youíre obviously facing a really good offense, how much do you want to be out there on Sunday?
A: I want to be out there every week no matter who we playing so we just got to see.

Q: How do you think your defense is doing right now as a group?
A: I think those guys are coming together. The first couple of a weeks of a season with every team, we have a lot of new guys, a lot of new faces so itís all about trying to gel together with everybody that you have and just each week that we keep getting deeper into the season it can only get better.

Q: Have you been watching the calls on roughing the passer that have been happening early in the season and are you concerned technique wise that thereís a problem there?
A: Yeah I just hope I donít get called for that. Not trying to get called for any of those, but thatís the rules.

Q: Are there things that you can and have done to change how you go aboutÖ?
A: I havenít really played in a game yet.

Q: I mean even over time because youíve been (inaudible) quarterbacks for a number of years.
A: I donít even know. I really donít have a straight answer for that one.

Q: There was nothing in training camp you did differently to compensate for it?
A: Not really. I donít got no straight answer for that one.

Q: Is your card game improving?
A: Working on it. I mean you got to ask Shurmur for that one.

Q: Whether youíre out there or not, how important is it that the pass rush gets to Drew (Brees)?
A: Itís vital. You got to put pressure on the quarterback of his criteria. Get him off his game.
