“Watching the last two games from home was something that I had to deal with. Obviously, I would have liked to be here with my teammates, but in these circumstances I couldn’t be. I just had to deal with it the best way I knew and move past it. I’m lucky enough to be back now and I’m just happy to be back here with my teammates, getting ready to go to Oakland this weekend.
“It’s always exciting for me to play football, but this will be the first time in the last two weeks that I get to play, so I’m looking forward to that and to being on the road. There’s great odds at stake with this game and it’s all in our hands.
“Watching the defensive line, Nick (Fairley) had a fast start at New Orleans and it was unfortunate that he got nicked up and wasn’t able to finish, but things happen in the game of football and we all understand that injuries and setbacks are always a part of the game. We’re happy to have him back now, and hopefully for this weekend, so that way both Nick and myself will have an opportunity to get back on the field and help the team reach the goals that we have set out for ourselves.
“Losing guys, particularly to injuries, is the name of the NFL, especially late in the year because guys bodies get tired for whatever reasons and injures pop-up. There are also other things that you have to deal with and coach (Schwartz) has said that many, many times. We have everybody that we need in this facility and guys are going to have to step up at particular points because injuries and certain things happen. I think my teammates have done that and I look forward to being a part of it for the last three games that we have for sure and obviously, if we take care of business, we look forward to getting into the playoffs.”
