Q: After that last game, what are your expectations, what do you think you can do and when do you think you can be back to 100 percent?

A: This week, I definitely want to make a lot of progress. I didn’t have my best game last week in my first game back. This is an important game for the team and a game where I have to step up. I fully expect that.

Q: Can you talk about playing in Wembley Stadium?

A: “I’ve actually never played in a stadium that large before. It’s a pretty exciting time over here. I’m just trying to get a lot of the culture along with working here everyday. I’m really looking forward to it.

Q: Were you surprised at how tough it was to come back after that last game and what do you want to work on at this point?

A: There really wasn’t one thing in the game I could point to about why I didn’t play to my potential. It’s about getting into the timing and rhythm of things and hopefully I’m able to do that this weekend.

Q: Were you surprised that it was maybe tougher than you thought to get into the swing of things?

A: Yes, I fully expected to come in and pick up right where I left off and obviously that didn’t happen for me, but I really can’t say it was harder. I just didn’t have a good game. You have those once in a while. Hopefully it’s a long time before I have another one.

Q: Was there any school of thought to that you came back too soon?

A: No, I felt great throughout the week. I had no setbacks. I actually practiced prior to the game. I felt great going in. I didn’t have one of my better games.
