HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on if there is any way Bob Sanders will play Friday) Training Camp
"We'll see how he comes along. Our thought is, at this point, he probably wouldn't play, but we'll see how he is conditioning-wise and see where he is mentally. We'll just have to see. We're not going to limit him, but my sense is that he won't play."
HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on the gameplan for DB-Bob Sanders) Training Camp
"We're really going to let him do some conditioning drills and let (Strength and Conditioning Coach) Jon Torine give us an idea where he is that way, and we'll see what he can handle. My sense is that it's going to be slower than faster, but if he comes along and is able to handle it, we'll get him as much as we can."
HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on how DB-Bob Sanders' foot is) Training Camp
"I think basically it's fine, in terms of where it is clinically. It's just more an issue of conditioning and getting used to carrying the pads again and hitting. Then, just the way you have to play the game. We saw with (RB) Dominic Rhodes and (WR) Brandon (Stokley), even though they've been here and practicing, getting in games all of a sudden is different."
HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on where he thinks the team is after last Saturday's game against Buffalo) Training Camp
"It wasn't where we want to be, and certainly not where we're going to need to be in nine or 10 days, whenever we go to New England. So, we have to get sharper. We have to eliminate some of the errors that have kind of plagued us through the first three preseason games. I think we have the talent to be a very good team, but we haven't shown that yet, and we have to show it out on the field."
DB-BOB SANDERS (on how his foot feels) Training Camp
"Good. I'm ready to go. It's just like I said, when the coaches say I can go, then I'll be ready."
DB-BOB SANDERS (on what waiting so long felt like) Training Camp
"It was an experience for me. I'm just glad I made it through it. It's over now, and I'm ready to move forward and want to continue to play this great game. I'm just excited to be here and be a part of this program."
DB-BOB SANDERS (on if he feels he has to prove anything to the team) Training Camp
"I know they understand the business. They've all been through it, and they understand my situation. So, I don't think that I really have to explain anything to them. I think they already know what's going on. Like I said, I'm here to play football. I'm excited to be here, and I'm glad to be here. I'm ready to just play."
DB-BOB SANDERS (on if he feels it will take extra work to get into the lineup) Training Camp
"Once I get out there, then I'll be able to show what I can do. Hopefully, I can help, whether it's on defense or special teams. I'm willing to contribute however Coach (Tony) Dungy wants me to."
