Q: How's the ankle?
A: Sore.

Q: Is it just from the game? Or is it just continuous?
A: I mean, I was sore after the game. Just some days it has a mind of its own, and today it wasn't real happy. So we're just trying to do the right thing and everything is just to get ready for Sunday.

Q: You had the cast. You had that under control so what's the next step?
A: Well, I don't know. Just ice and ice some more. The tough thing is that really rest is the only thing that seems to really do anything for it, and I don't plan on getting any rest until late February.

Q: Is it something you might eventually need surgery for to really get rid of it altogether?
A: No I don't. I don't think it's anything that surgery would really correct right now. It's just kind of a condition that just is basically going to be there until you can quiet it down and give it enough rest to heal properly. Then hopefully you don't have to deal with it again.

Q: Are you concerned about playing Sunday?
A: No, not at this point I'm not. No.

Q: You look at a game like when the Colts gave up 250 yards rushing, do you say you can expose those guys?
A: We're obviously a run-first team anyway, so that's our mentality. That's how we establish our physical presence, and I'm sure they know that we are watching the film and we saw what happened. But I know it's something that they are correcting. We have things to correct ourselves from last week, things that we didn't do as well. So it's going to be a good challenge.

Q: Did you feel the ankle go during practice or was it something that happened overnight?
A: It's just sore. It's just really sore, and it's just kind of an accumulation of things. So we're just trying to do the right thing and hopefully tomorrow it will feel better.
