Kansas City didn’t go as well as we all would have wanted, obviously. But one good thing game out of it — I got to see my family.
I was raised around that area, and the majority of my family is still there, so that was good. Aunts and uncles, cousins, brothers and sisters — I got to see them all. It wasn’t for a long period of time, but it was just good to see them for what little bit of time they had. I took what I got and enjoyed it. Definitely took a lot of pictures.
I know I admitted growing up that some of us were Chiefs fans, but don’t worry it’s not that way anymore. My family is just a football family. My dad’s side is from Baltimore, and a couple of my uncles liked the Chiefs. But everybody’s a Broncos fan now.
Not much new is going on this week, just the same old, same old. Which I guess is a good thing by itself — everything is going smoothly in my recovery. I’m just trying to get my arm strong and keep on working in the training room.
Hopefully I’ll be back on the practice field in a couple of weeks. I’ve just got to be patient, that’s how it goes. For now I’m just preparing for the game as if I’m playing. Going through the same meetings as everybody else, studying, doing the same tests and just helping the team mentally and verbally. That’s the role I have right now, so I’m just trying to help out where I can and make sure we get this W.
From what I’ve seen on film, the Bucs look like a tough team. They’ve got a very sound defense where everyone knows their position well. There are a lot of vets on that side of the ball. We as an offense just have to be ready for them.
Nothing really else to update you all on, except one thing I’ve been seeing online. I never really played fantasy football, but some of my friends told me some of the experts have been saying to pick me up on your team now for when I’m back on the field.
That’s tight. Definitely go ahead and pick me up. But I don’t know nothing about all that fantasy draft stuff. I don’t know about putting points up in that, I know I’m just trying to put up points in the real game. That’s all I’m trying to do.
That’s it for this week, but I’ll check in next week. I might let you all in on what a typical day at Dove Valley is like for me during my rehab.
