Outside Linebacker Kayvon Thibodeaux

Q: How are you feeling?

A: Pretty good, pretty good. I've been rehabbing. It's day to day right now. I've just been working, trying to get better to get back in shape and get it going.

Q: Do you think you'll play on Sunday?

A: I don't know. Right now, it's day to day. It could really go either way. We're just waiting to see where it is when the time comes.

Q: How hard will it be not to play, if you don't?

A: Now you've got to accept however we go. We're a team and (Head Coach Brian Daboll) Dabs is the person who harps on next play, next man up. So just giving in any way I can, realizing that if I am not able to play, if I'm there, then I have to be engaged and I have to help my team – contribute to the win.

Q: Do you feel like you got enough out of training camp to be ready? Obviously, you would have liked to have the extra two weeks.

A: Yeah, I feel like it's the consistent growth – there's never enough. Actually, I'll say no, because there is never enough. There's never enough time in the day, there's never enough time to practice. As long as I continue to take every day and continue to take the little moments to get better, I'll be good.

Q: You were running though, and everything is fine with the knee?

A: I'm doing a lot better. Continuous rehab and we just continue to push forward.

Q: Is there some kind of movement that you need to see where you feel that you're actually feeling healthy?

A: I've just got to be able to practice. If you don't practice, you don't play. Me just being able to get out there, get some work and do everything that I need to do the time I need to get my job done.

Q: Does it put anything extra on you or (Outside Linebacker) Azeez (Ojulari) that you're both down? Does that make one of you guys press to get back?

A: I feel like we're both pressed to get back because we both love the sport, and we want to get back. This is the NFL, we have a room full of guys who can get the job done, we have a room full of guys who are actually superstars. Supporting them and then also trying to get back and doing everything we can to get better.

Q: What did you think of the play? Did you think that was a dirty block?

A: I try not to think about the past. I talked to him, and I'm not really worried about it, we're moving forward trying to get better and make sure you play with good technique. It's football, it's a 100% injury rate. You've got to just be ready to recover when your time comes and be ready to be smart in different situations.

Q: How big of a sigh of relief was it for you when you got the diagnosis?

A: It wasn't really a sigh. My knee was hurting, don't get me wrong, so it wasn't really a sigh. It was just, this is what the results are, and I've got to go make a play, I've got to go make things happen, bounce back.

Q: Did you realize it would get as much attention when you shrugged the cart off and told the cart you were walking?

A: Attention from me walking?

Q: From us but yeah, of you walking off…

A: Or just the world? The hit?

Q: People seeing that you just basically said…

A: God is good, man. When you believe and you walk through His faith – I sat there and was hurting for a minute, but He gave me the strength to get up and walk it off, so I wasn't going to look crazy going off, I've got to go off like a 'G.'

Q: Do you know what you said in that moment? Did you see the GIF?

A: I saw him, he saw me and then next thing you know it was like I locked eyes with him and then he cut me. That was it.

Q: Did you see the thing going around of your face?

A: I mean, everything was going around. I don't know what wasn't going around. Memes and stuff are funny.

I know I'm not a doctor & obviously haven't examined KT's injury, but I would prefer we ease him back into it. There's no need to rush.
This might not be the ideal match up either

No need for him to be steam rolled by Henry.

This might be a better game for J.Ward anyway.
What’s the point of him doing a press releaae

If he was playing , sure, but why play i? He’s hurt! He’s our prize rookie. I’d rather him not play unless he was reasonably recovered.
He may already know full well that he is playing or not playing...

But it's just smart to say it's still undecided. No reason to give Tennessee any more info than necessary. I'm surprised they spilled the beans on who would be calling plays. I guess they didn't want to be overly coy with the media and it's not like anyone has a history on Kafka's playcalling tendencies.
Maybe just me but sounds like he's

I really hope it doesn’t rain. I think it’s isolated thunderstorms
