Antrel Rolle was on SiriusXM's Mad Dog Radio channel today talking about the injury to Terrell Thomas.

“That’s going to have a huge impact on our season and most of all on our hearts, you know, as players," he said. "He’s a great football player but most of all he’s a great guy and it’s very unfortunate for a situation like that to happen to someone of his caliber. You know, you can’t question what the guy above does, his plan is always different than what you may think it is, and I think it’s only going to make T2 stronger. I think it’s going to make him a better person, which is hard to believe, I don’t see how you can become any better than what he already is but, you know, there’s always a way. And, you know he’s going to be fine. We’re just gonna make sure we keep his spirits uplifted and just make sure he comes back to us better than he was when he left.

"I had a huge comfort level [on the field] with Terrell Thomas," Rolle added. "We worked a lot together, we talked a lot, because our roles were similar in a lot of ways. That’s why it hurts me a lot to see him go down, it really did. Honestly, I don’t know what to do. I still don’t know how to handle it at this point but I’m going to have to try to find a way. I have to. We have to as a defense.”
