Drew: Yep, I had it looked at last night, and hopefully we should hear back on it today. The swelling has gone down on it, so it’s feeling better. It’s just a matter of making my mind up or getting opinions on whether I should try to push it or see what the best thing I should do.

Â
Hondo: Is it the same injury Drew, or virtually the same spot where you hurt it in ’03 in the punt coverage?
Drew: Yeah, its dealing with my right knee, it’s just one of those things I don’t know what it is for sure.  It’s not my ACL, because they checked that out, it’s all strong, it could have something to do with my meniscus or something of that nature.

Â
Reporter: So worse case scenario it just requires rest?
Drew: Yep, hopefully, that’s kind of what I’m counting on. Hopefully I can get the treatments, get in there, and like I said it’s been responding well to treatments. So hopefully it’s just a matter of taking some time off and trying to build it up, the strength.
Â
Hondo: Personally, it’s gotta be immensely frustrating, but no one has ever doubted your work ethic, so its just a matter of you having to fight your whole career.
Drew: Yep, it’s just one of those things that’s just another obstacle, so hopefully I’m going to do what they tell me to do, hopefully my knee responds, and my body responds to it. It’s just that I’m trying to do as much as I can about it, but also be smart about it. I think I still can benefit a lot by coming out here and seeing everything and trying to understand everything that’s going on. That’s big from my standpoint in getting those mental reps, and just trying to learn and ask questions and kind of watching other people do it.
Â
We apologize to the great Lions fans that can’t watch this as a video which would be much better for the fans. The new stupid NFL rules prohibit that.  Thanks GODell! MOST OF ALL, THANK THE TEAMS. GODell WORKS FOR THEM AND THEY ARE ALLOWING HIM TO DO THIS!
