Woodyard's World: Week 7

Posted Oct 18, 2013

Linebacker Wesley Woodyard blogs about returning to practice and Von Miller's return to the defense.

Editor's note: Linebacker Wesley Woodyard, who was voted as a team captain for the fifth-consecutive season this year, will contribute blog entries thoughout the 2013 season. See below for his latest entry about about returning to the practice field and Von Miller's return to the defense.

While I wish I could have played, it was pretty cool to be on the sidelines helping out last week. Coaching is something that I want to do when I’m done playing football. I was watching the tendencies, what we scouted on and giving our guys coaching points of what to do, but I definitely want to be on the field this week.

It felt good to be back out there on the practice field the last couple days. I finally got a chance to get back out there with my pads on. It’s really exciting to see the whole team back together out there with Von and Champ back.

I think everyone is excited about Von’s return this week.

Man, where do I start with what he brings to the defense? I think his pass-rushing ability is the biggest thing that we really rely on so it’s good to get back our best pass rusher. He can do a ton of different things, but that’s something we’re really counting on.

It helps a lot that he’s been around the building this whole time. He’s been taking notes every week like he’s been getting ready to play. He’s been approaching every week as if he was getting ready to play and that’s a good thing. He’s not taking a step back, he’s just picking up where he left off last year.

There’s a lot of hype surrounding this game. We all know that, but it’s one of those things where you don’t even have to talk about it.

Peyton is our quarterback and besides that, he’s a great guy. Any time you have a teammate that goes back and plays their own team, you want to get that win just for them. That’s one of those times where you enjoy putting other people before yourself. So, it’s a big game for him. He doesn’t need to say anything, we don’t need to say anything – that’s just a given.
