"Yeah, I mean, obviously you have rehab stuff," he said. "You have different therapy things that the trainers have for you. Luckily for me, we have the best training staff in the NFL. I just listen to what they tell me to do and try to get myself ready. We have practice today, and I get to go test it out a little bit ... [the play where he got hurt] was a play where we called a shot downfield, and they did a good job of covering my first, second, and third options. Kind of trying to reset in the pocket. Usually when you're on your fourth read, getting to those last reads, there are people around you ... just got unlucky, a guy ended up falling on my ankle. It's part of football, it's just part of playing the quarterback position. You try to just prepare yourself to bounce back quickly."
