Q: How does your knee feel?
A: Great.

Q: Great? No setbacks this week?
A: No.

Q: Do you see this as a precaution or are there issues that you have to be careful with?
A: It's more of a precaution, nothing serious. They're just trying to be smart right now.

Q: Is your questionable status a conservative or a pessimistic viewpoint?
A: Conservative. That's what I'm going to say right now. I think we're being conservative right now. I hope to play, looking forward to playing. I've been watching film and doing everything to prepare to play, so I'm looking forward to it.

Q: Tom said you have an MCL problem:
A: That's pretty much why we're trying to be conservative. It's nothing with my knee that I had surgery on. There's no setbacks or swelling or anything, the knee is great.

Q: With another knee issue, is that kind of a danger in regard to the knee you had surgery on last season?
A: It could be in some cases. In this case, it's not as far as I know. I've been talking to the trainers and everyone else, and I'm pretty good.

Q: You said it could be in other cases?
A: In some cases, depending on how severe the MCL is, but mine is pretty much nothing.

Q: Anything related to when they looked at your knee during the Titans game?
A: No, that had nothing to do with it. I didn't hurt my knee on that play. Something different.

Q: How limited would you be if you did have to play with a brace?
A: I'm not sure. I've played a little bit with the brace on, and I did a little bit today without it. I feel good either way, to tell you the truth, so you just have to play.

Q: How confident are you that you can get past this and it won't bother you all year?
A: I'm very confident. It happened last week during the game, and I was able to finish the game and play well. Pretty much, I can do the same thing.
