I just wasn't sure exactly orders order was to sometimes used singers sometimes you get like. The Charley horse cynical way -- two minutes and it is hurt real bad real quick for two minutes I was -- -- it was satellite. Of course stinger. Like in the -- -- -- Marat in the -- or something emerge is number there are real quick. Consultant or those are and what you are aware obviously and -- -- broke so it would look in the way I wanted to go out we want them and there's little -- lawyers are. That's sort of what happened. There there was a lot of conversation after the initial injury -- -- special teams and crawled is too valuable to be out there was indeed on that extra point out that it happened maybe earlier in acting. None of them -- support around. I -- pulled off I mean where you got the year ago period in game you have got different game so. But the matter what really happened to have I'm so so pretext. I get a 100% now. You gonna -- six weeks later and at Miami game and is a good pitcher Buchanan. Avoiding that are much is dangling that -- was a bother you that much in their final game -- the -- regular season. -- A millionaire group. Comedian we're really vote them back out great obviously cornered about -- -- -- -- one hand as you can see everything but. Are -- getting used to it now and experience but the flow of the game against our duty to beat down. And other times you're prepared going into the oil output -- a Miami game.

We try to figure out why this was still bothering you there may be found out later that there was static stress on the part of the ball. Are what what what -- be your. Click here how concerned were you that moving four did you think the two weeks we're gonna help at all because. In your six weeks out need to be -- it's healed by now it was. It would I could really tell your circular and I felt good in just going into a playoff game I already felt confident about it in.

Well ever appear -- are never heard of that but -- But I not a -- and everybody -- used -- never heard Mitch Rosser slots in the -- it was right rob. Not merit a barrier. Guy who -- -- Wes Welker can you explain is that as a receiving tight end what Wes Welker does for you rob in terms of as you free up space you make your job easier middle field. Oh yeah about what I mean you're -- OS here play it'll work on because as a -- he's an unbelievable player. And also so much fourteen. He's got a -- gravel target and he helps me to get opening up principal players get open. Because they got a double cover him that we single coverage for other players so he's a great player play where family got suck up when he in the in my back and. Do you think you'll be back next year with the team rob. Are no good but my short term. I have no prayer you know Brothers -- thought well this offense and in the post season maybe struggling against physical teams and tiger says can be frustrating for you in anonymity being a tear it to repeat baby physically healthy wise down the stretch with. The two tight ends we always talk about -- and Hernandez and this year to seem like you were never on the field togethers that take away from what you're able to do.
