QUOTES OF THE DAY


"It's been a long, hard road and to be back in full pads and get to take some 11-on-11 reps has been good. I'm happy. It was great to get back out there today. I'm a little rusty right now, but that's to be expected."
-- DT Adam Smotherman on participating in his first full-contact drills Tuesday

"It's painful enough to where I can't perform as well as I need to and the procedure is for the pain. It could have been a lot worse. We're just going to get it taken care of and I should be back real soon."
-- LB Chris Marve, who won't play Saturday due to a knee injury

Shelby also sent in the song of the day -- Martin Page's "In the House of Stone and Light."
