Former players take on current Colts

(Continued)

INDIANAPOLIS —

 
“I don’t know. I’m going in and I’m sure it’s going to be tough seeing everybody and hanging around. But ultimately I have a job to do and I consider myself a pro and I know I’ve got to go out there and do my job and play well," he said.
 
"The Colts defense has played well. They’re very aggressive up front so we’ve got our work cut out for us keeping them off of Aaron (Rodgers) and being able to open up some holes. I know I’ve got a job and I can’t get caught up in all the emotions of it, I’m going to have to separate that. Then maybe on the way out, I’ll get a little emotional then.”
 
One thing Saturday can expect. Over the years, when a former Colts player has returned with another team, the organization has put together a video honoring the player's accomplishments while in Indianapolis. It usually occurs between the third and fourth quarters.
 
“I hope it’s a good one. I hope they put some good stuff up there. You appreciate it. As a player, man I gave the same as I’m doing here. I gave everything I had. I played as hard as I could," he said. "I felt like I led the team on and off the field and did the best job that I could. I’m proud of the time that I was there and always look fondly upon that time.”
 
Saturday acknowledged, somewhat jokingly, that one of his biggest challenges today will be not ending up on the wrong sideline or in the wrong locker room.
 
“I don’t know, man. The crazy thing is I don’t think I’ve ever even been to the visitors locker room in Indy. I don’t even know where I’m going to be. It’s all going to look different and obviously coming out and seeing the team," he said.
