He loves being out there. He loves practice. He loves the whole process, so for that to be taken away from him is a killer. s a football team, wel regroup. Wel find somebody to go back there – I not sure exactly what that plan will be yet but as the course of this week progresses wel narrow it down Whoever that will be will do a good job. It not about one guy. We always say that. Eleven guys play together. Wel have a good, competitive player back there. I don think anyone will be like Darren. He just a special, special player and person. Your heart breaks for him.”
