Jason Campbell Media Session

On how he feels after his injury in Thursday's game:

"It's a tough situation to be in, but I was glad to see we won last night. That's the most important thing. I thought Todd came in and did an outstanding job of leading the team and getting a win. I was proud of the way our team continued to keep fighting and get a win."

On his status:

"It's hard to say. Right now we're taking everything day by day. We'll see how things improve over the next couple weeks. Right now, the thing I have to do is stay off of it as much as possible and let the swelling get out of it and we'll see what happens."

On if he has ever had a similar injury:

"No, I haven't been through anything this extreme. I'm kind of lucky I don't have to have surgery, and I thank God to not be in that situation. I just have to see how it feels from a day to day and week to week basis."

On if it was worse than his August knee injury:

"Yeah, it was a lot worse. It was one of those times where you don't want to look at it and your kneecap is sitting on the side of your knee. It took them two times to pop it back into place."

On where he'll be rehabbing:

"I'm going to come [to Redskins Park] and rehab and continue to be around the team as much as I can and just root the guys on. They've supported me and I want to do the same for them. I'll support Todd [Collins] as he takes the reins."

On the value of the backup quarterback:

"It's important. If you look around the league, you have to have a quarterback that can come out to play because you never know when something like this is going to happen. The main thing for Todd is that he has an opportunity. He was with Coach Al Saunders in Kansas City before he got here, so he already knows the offense and he can go out there and do what he can do."

On if he would be surprised if he came back this season:

"I'm not going to rule myself out of anything. I'm always going to stay positive about anything. The one thing you don't want to do is be ignorant about it. You want to be smart about it. So I'll take it as a week to week thing, and day to day. It's hard to say right now, the day after."
