Game time is just days away, and I feel good. I'll be out there for the start of the game and ready to go. The coaches will tell me how much I am going to play, but it's exciting to know that I'll be on the field ready to go.
Although I missed the preseason, I feel like I am in pretty good shape. Obviously, conditioning-wise, I'll get there. Football speed is just totally different once you get out on the field. But mentally, I'm in the game. I'm sharp. I know my job and hopefully I can just go out there and do what I've always done and perform.
The reason I'm pretty confident that I'll be good to go Sunday is because my rookie year in the league with the Baltimore Ravens, the same thing happened. I had a high ankle sprain, missed the whole preseason, and then came out and started the first game. So I hope to have that same success this year.
Everyone in the locker room is really excited about this season. We're confident in the preseason we had. Our offense went out there and played well. Defensively, we made a lot of plays out there, and we're confident. We just want to go out now and get a win when it all counts.
The Chiefs are a proven team. They've had a lot of success running the ball, and we expect a heavy dose of that. Although they have some new offensive linemen, their running game is still powerful. There's a lot of film to study on tackle Kyle Turley. We know what he's all about. Then their other tackle, Damion McIntosh, missed most of the preseason, so we haven't seen a ton of him. But with Larry Johnson getting carries, we know it's going to be a difficult challenge.
We've watched a lot of tape on quarterback Damon Huard and the entire Kansas City offense, so I think we're prepared. All that's left is to get this season started.
I hope to see you there.
