Montgomery Training Camp Media Session

On how frustrating it is to be injured during training camp:

"It is kind of frustrating, but I am just thankful that it is nothing major like a knee or a shoulder or something. I can still come back during the pre-season. If it was a half season or all season it would be a lot worse. You never want something like this, but I can come back with a speedy recovery, so I am thankful for that."

On the injuries to the defensive line:
"Since day one we had a lot of defensive linemen going down. We were fortunate enough to get Jason Taylor in here. This is only a two to four week injury then I can come back and keep going."

On the pressure put on the healthy linemen:
"Going into this game you know injuries are a possibility, so you have to expect things like this to happen. You never want it to, but when it does that is why you work hard in the offseason to be prepared for situations like this."

On if this camp is more physical than previous years:
"It is not that this is a more physical camp, it is just coincidence. That is the funny thing about football, you just never know. Anything can happen. This year it just happened to be the defensive line."
