Well, first of all I just want to thank all the fans out there that have been showing me support since my injury. I appreciate it. I need it all. I love it all, and I’m going to do what I can to get back out there and get in the show.
I have surgery around 5:00 p.m. on Friday where they’ll repair some ligament damage and put a plate in my elbow. I’m going to be staying overnight, and I’ll probably be back at the rookie hotel on Sunday morning. I’ll probably be away from training camp for three or four days when I’ll get the swelling down, then they’ll put me in a little brace where I’ll be able to work my movement in my elbow. Then I’ll just be rehabbing with Greek and the trainers.
It’s so frustrating because I just missed half of my senior season in college. Then I come back and I’m doing well in camp, about to play in my first game since October, and I injure my elbow and get sidetracked for three months. It’s frustrating but at the same time I’ve got to stay focused, stay smart in my mind and don’t get mentally broke down. I just have to stay positive about the whole situation and make it work.
