I’m OK. I banged my wrist a little bit early in the second quarter. Got x-rays. Negative. Iced it. Threw some tape on there. Probably throw some tape on there on the flight home so it doesn’t swell. But I’m fine.

How he got injured: "I was throwing the ball away and I hit the ground. I don’t know if I landed on it or somebody else landed on it. But I fell awkwardly. It happened early in the second quarter. It was the first drive."

On the hot read to Bobby Engram: "It is not drawn up that way. What is ironic about that is Bobby and I have been talking, saying if this ever happened this is what I would expect. What would you expect? And we kind of talked it through and then when it happened he really sold it hard, kept his head down, running hard and got separation. I threw it up not knowing if he was going to look. It was a perfectly executed play. Great job by our offensive line for buying me some time. Thank God we go to the shotgun now because that is the only way that play gets off. And Bobby did the rest."

Have you ever seen 10 guys on the line scrimmage like Atlanta was today? "Yeah, it’s called a punt return."

Are some of the mistakes made possibly from looking ahead? "I don’t know exactly. My fumble I really didn’t think that guy was on me that quick. I am assuming it was Abraham, he is a great player. I have to be more careful there. I kind of missed a lot of the second half because that is when I was getting ice on my wrist."

Will you practice this week? "Yeah yeah, I definitely anticipate not missing any practice."
