The All-Pro TE sat in from of reporters at Media Day today and basically vowed to play in the Super Bowl this Sunday vs the Giants.
"This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance," he said as per CSNNE.com. "I'm living it up with my teammates."
He said his ankle, which was not in the supportive boot he has been sporting the past few days, was "improving and getting stronger everyday", although he has yet to practice.
There is no doubt in anyone's mind he will be in uniform this week, defying the odds as he has done throughout moody of his short NFL career.
"This isn't a regular-season game," he said. "This is the Super Bowl."
