Prince told the media today that he is on the road to recovery and is taking it day by day....
How’s the ankle feel? You’re out of the boot?"Yeah, I’m out of the walking boot. I’ve been rehabbing, walking better, and it feels a lot better than it did last week. It’s only been six days, so we’re still taking it day-by-day."
Is there still swelling?"Not a lot of swelling, but the trainers told me to not let that steer me the wrong way or confuse me because it’s still painful, and like I said, it’s still progressing."
We heard it was based a lot on pain tolerance?"Exactly."
Is it still very painful?"I haven’t been able to run, but walking is good, and getting on my toes is good, and I couldn’t even do that three days ago so I’m glad that I’m progressing."
Do you know where you stand right now in terms of your injury?"The doctor was impressed with how quick I’ve been improving. He said that it’s still a day-by-day thing, and I need to start running and practicing first, and I haven’t done that yet, so after I get the ok from the trainers we’ll go from there."
Are you hoping to get the okay before the Dallas game?"For sure. I hope that they make the best decision for me and the team."
Thoughts on the extended break after the Cowboys game:"I’m thinking Week 2 is more promising, but I want Week 1 to be promising as well. They haven’t told me yes, they haven’t told me no."
