Walter Jones: "I still want to play this game"
Posted by Danny O'Neil
"My next step is to keep working and try to get back," Jones said Wednesday afternoon. "I still want to play this game. I still have the love. I like the competition. I still want to go out there and compete with the guys. That's my No. 1 goal right now is to continue to keep doing what I've got to do to get back on the field for next year."
So how does the decision to place him on injured reserve affect him?
"It's tough," Jones said. "I think it was a decision that they made, and I'm cool with that because it's just tough, I've been working hard trying to get back on the football field. Everybody knows the limitations I have on the stuff that I can take to get back. So I just have to take that and still continue to do the things I have to do to get back on the football field."
Is it just a matter of pain?
"That's the most part of it," Jones said. "Just feeling comfortable enough to go back out there and play football. I was always dealing with a situation where I could never get out there and consistently practice day in and day out where I felt good about the knee."
