Q: Is it a pain management issue?

A: I mean, I don’t know I honestly don’t know. It is one of those things where you just got to see how it goes. I mean so far been getting better every day and that is the goal.

Q: The straight line running is less of the issue it is the lateral stuff?

A: Right. Pretty much just mostly all my cuts and everything like that. I mean if it is something I can’t do then I probably won’t go. But if I feel comfortable at the end of the weekend, feel like I can go and get the job done I am definitely going to be out there.

Q: Are you pretty restless in the situation you are in not being able to play?

A: I mean it is one of the situations you pretty much got to take it as it comes. Can’t doing anything to much about it, I mean it happens. But as far for me I am just trying to do everything I can to get back as fast as possible because I know the team needs me.

Q: When do you think you will be back?

A: I am shooting for this week. I am shooting for this but I am not a 100% sure.

Q: Do you think you have a realistic shot?

A: Most definitely. I am not going to count myself out. But I know, I’ll know later in this week of how I can cut and everything like and be able to get to it.

Q: How do you feel you guys performed with the backups in?
A: It was decent. I’m not going to say it was good because I don’t think it was good anyway. But they played hard. That’s something you want to see when guys … I mean a lot of guys came in, and they didn’t know where they were going to come in. I mean, people got hurt during the game so it was different for those guys to come in but, they played hard and gave a good effort, so that was good to see.

Q: How does Stephon (Gilmore) not playing impact the defense?
A: It definitely hurts. I mean, when you have those two guys outside playing as well as they are, it definitely limits part of the field. It’s going to be tough, but we have Leodis (McKelvin) and guys who can step up and have played that position a long time in the league. It’s not like we have a rookie or somebody going in on the outside. We have a guy who has been proven in this league.

Q: How satisfying was the win?
A: It’s good. We all know what we have to do. We have to keep winning each week. We have to take it one week at a time. And now we have to go to Philly and get a big win again.

Opening Statement:

Yes, I cut my hair. No, it has nothing to do with football. I did donate some yes.

Q: What was the exact cause for charity?

A: I was just over having long hair. Been six years felt like cutting it.

Q: It was to like make a wig right?

A:  Yeah, the stylist had to come over cut my hair said that as long as I had eight inches of it that she could donate it. I am not sure where it is going but she was going to donate it somewhere.

Q: How many years since you been growing it?

A: I started growing it in 2009. So it has been six years.

Q: Is that a superstitious thing?

A: No, no. Hey, you are talking to the least superstitious guy in the locker room.

Q: Will having four healthy corners be a challenge for this group?
A: Yeah, but the next guy has got to step up and be ready to play.

Q: How do you get ready to play?
A: You still can. Season practice is not as hard as camp so, you get quality work.

Q: Have you looked at the Eagles yet?
A: I started looking at a little bit of their games but it really starts today.

Q: How does their quick pace impact defenses?
A: I’m always like Oregon, you know, knowing that they got their coach. You just have to have a plan going in so when they line up fast, you know what you’re running.

Q: What difference will Stephon (Gilmore) being out have on the defense?
A: It’ll be a huge difference. He’s a playmaker and a game changer.

Q: What’s the process been like to see Tyrod Taylor develop?
A: You know; it’s been pretty cool to watch him develop. I spent some time with him before he was a Buffalo Bill, before I was even a Buffalo Bill. I got a chance to really see his work ethic, his passion, his drive to be great. Then being a teammate with him here and watching him develop in to not only a starter but a great player for this team. It’s been fun. Tyrod is a great leader, he’s a great friend, and it’s really exciting to see him develop and see this team kind of rally around him.

Q: What have you seen in the huddle during the fourth quarter from Tyrod?
A: I think the great thing about Tyrod is first quarter or fourth quarter, good play or bad play, he’s exactly the same. He’s a real cool customer. He doesn’t get too high, doesn’t get too low. Just stays at a consistent level and that’s good for us. You don’t want a guy, especially at the quarterback position, who is freaking out after a bad play or who’s getting way too hyper after a touchdown. You want a guy that’s composed and that’s going to lead this team.

Q: Can you talk about LeSean McCoy’s impact to this offense?
A: From an offensive line standpoint, I think it’s an offense as a whole. We kind of figured what we do well and what Shady likes to run and what we block well. So I think you’ve seen an emphasis on things that we do well. There’s a lot of things that we get blocked up and Shady hits and there’s a lot of things that aren’t blocked and Shady just makes a great play. He had a couple in the game on Sunday where there wasn’t much there and he made a guy miss and it’s a 15-20 yard gain.

Q: Comment on the lines ability to pull well.
A: Yeah, we’re doing a great job getting around on the edge, kind of cutting into the defense blocking down and getting us pulled around. I love pulling; I’ve always been a really good pulling guard. I had a lot of success kind of getting to the second level and seeking out linebackers and safeties and stuff like that. It’s fun to do, especially when you rip off big chunks of yards, it’s hard to defend.

Q: How much fun was it to watch that film of containing J.J. Watt?
A: It was great. We’re about to go through the tape right now, we have Mondays off. So we’re about to go through the tape, I’ve watched the game a couple times. Any time you neutralize a great player like that it’s a feather in your cap. He’s an all-world player. He’s the best defensive player in this league, we knew that going in. We heard it from the outside about how he was going to break the sack record and things like that on us and we took it personal. We went in there with a chip on our shoulder. We identified where he was at and then we blocked him up.
