Sean McDermott doesn’t provide much information on how much time players may miss with injuries.
He has two designations. “Day to day” usually means the player has a chance to play the next game. “Week to week” is the more serious status and usually guarantees a player will miss one or more games.
Micah Hyde got the “dreaded” week to week label on Monday. However on Wednesday, Hyde wasn’t ready to rule himself out.
“I see myself as being a little hurt right now. I don’t consider myself injured,” Hyde said. “I’m gonna put in the work every single day to see what I can do to make it out by Sunday.”
Hyde acknowledged there’s a fine line between pushing himself to play this week and doing further damage that might keep him out deeper into the season.
“I’m a competitor. I want to go out there and play each week. That’s where the trainers come in and tell me to chill out,” Hyde said. “Listen to your body and listen to the trainers.”
Hyde admitted leaving his return trip to Green Bay in the first quarter was a kick in the gut. He also admitted to being a liar, though this transgression will be easily forgiven.
“I was lying to you guys all week, saying that was just another game,” Hyde said. “It wasn’t a revenge game. I wanted this team to go in there and compete. It was a sick feeling standing on the sideline.”
Hyde says everything happens for a reason and God has a plan for everything. He hopes that plan includes a chance to play this week.
“No guarantees. I’m not saying I’m in. I’m not saying I’m out,” Hyde said. “I just want to give myself a chance, so by Sunday, we can see.”
