Q: What was the injury that kept you out of the start of the season?

A: It was a broken right hand. It happened in our scrimmage.

A: We want to make it through this season, then work out all offseason and come back ready to go.

Q: How long have you been playing football?

A: 11 years.

Q: What is your favorite food?

Q: What is your favorite movie?

Q: If you could have dinner with anybody, who would it be?

A: Urban Meyer. He's a great coach, and he does a lot for the Ohio State program.
