Jonathan Joseph:

"“I think he just gave guys even more energy throughout practice and just lifted us up a little bit. Just to see he was doing well enough to come out here and watch us at practice. There’s so much of the unknown going around. To see that he’s physically OK and able to come out here and be at practice … it was just good for us to see him in great condition.”"

Chris Myers:

"“That was a nice little surprise to be able to see Coach Kub out there. After this past game and everything that went down, you’re obviously just wondering if he’s OK.”"

Brooks Reed:

"“He kind of snuck up there. It was good to see him come out there and show that he was well and upbeat. He basically explained that he’s feeling a lot better and he’s liking what he’s seen. It meant a lot for everyone for him to come out and see that he’s well.”"

Antonio Smith:

"“It was a breath of fresh air. Everybody was wondering how is really doing. Is there some kind of conspiracy theory? Is he really worse than what they said? But he’s right there, right there in front of you doing good.”"
