Comments from Ben Olson. How did it feel out there today?"It felt pretty good. I was pretty sore and those types of things. Today was the first day that I have been able to take, not really significant reps, but I was able to take a few reps with the team. I was just trying to get healthy and get out there." Coach said that you're not fully mobile. "I don't know as far as a percentage. It's still pretty sore going to my right and things like that where you gotta push off of it. Hopefully in the coming days it will just keep getting better." How do you feel about where you might be by the end of the week?"We'll see how it feels tomorrow. Today was kind of the most I've done since I got hurt. Hopefully tomorrow I won't be too sore and be able to practice and do a little bit more." Do you think that you could play Saturday if needed?"I think so. I'm definitely not 100%. If I'm needed I'm up for the opportunity to be out there." How long has it been since you took a snap in practice?"Well, I tried to take some snaps last week, but I really wasn't able to get away from center like I need to be able to."Did coach Dorrell describe to you what emergency quarterback means?"Well, that's not in my control. I've definitely learned that you have got to worry about the things that you can control. If I'm needed, I'll be ready." What's this last 4-5 weeks been like for you?"It's always tough when you're injured. And I've had my fair share of injuries here at UCLA so I've learned how to deal with them. You can't control them, you just have to accept things for what they are and be optimistic. You never know for sure when you're going to be healthy and when you're going to be able to come back. You have to learn from experience that you cannot rush it. You're body will let you know when you are ready to go."
