On QB Drew Stanton's knee being scoped:
"They went in and they cleaned it out. They got some old junk in there that they got rid of it. They trimmed back a little bit of the cartilage, but they were happy with it. Now he just needs a little time to rest; then we'll start a little rehab. Then it's a matter of how fast he heals and we'll just play it by ear."

On how long QB Drew Stanton will be out: "We don't know; everybody heals differently. We just need to wait. Two people can have this done the same day, same knee, do this scraping and all then one can be back in a month and the other may be back in six weeks. It just depends on the guy, so that's what we'll wait on."

On the prognosis of Stanton's surgery: "It went pretty good I guess. Obviously I didn't do (the surgery), but it was pretty clean, pretty sound. I guess there were some loose bodies they cleaned out and they had to trim a little bit of the cartilage back, but it went pretty good and we'll wait and see."

On whether Stanton will practice again before the regular season begins: "I would hope so, but you don't know. It just depends on how he heals."
