Safety Patrick Chung, who has missed the last two games with a right knee injury suffered early in the second quarter against the Chargers, chatted for a few minutes today and sounded optimistic.
“Feels good,” he said. “I’m going day by day but it feels a lot better.”
Chung wouldn’t say whether he was playing this week or not, but typically injured Pats players step back in front of the recorders and microphones when they’ve been given the green light. Chung has been practicing on a limited basis since his injury, but was scratched before each of the last two games.
Watching his teammates wasn’t easy, but he noted several times that that’s in the past.
If he does play, what does Chung see from the Steelers’ offense?
“They’re physical, tough, good receivers, good running back. We have to bring our ‘A’ game, like I always say every week,” he said.
