On his reaction to learning Stephon Heyer will start at right tackle:
"I was disappointed that I am not going to be out there. I still believe in myself to be the right tackle here. It is not going to be that way on [Thursday] and that is what I am going to have to deal with."
On the injury to his right foot:
"It is not an issue. I am healthy and ready to go when needed."
On the reasons the coaches gave him for their decision:
"There were some reasons thrown around. Nothing that I felt was reason enough, but they are the coaches and I am the player and I will go out there and do what I'm supposed to do."
On whether he can work his way back into the starting line up:
"I am going to go out there everyday and work as hard as I can, like I have done every day that I have been here. The decision is the coach's not mine."
On how he played during the preseason:
"It really doesn't matter how I grade myself. They graded me as not the starting right tackle, so that his how it is."
