San Francisco 49ers defensive end Justin Smith told the media that he believes he’ll be even better this week as he continues to get used to playing with a brace to protect his torn triceps.
“It felt pretty good for the most part, just getting used to it, playing with it,” Smith said of playing with a brace on his left elbow. “It should be even better this week after going through it and knowing how it felt and what to expect. So it should be even better this week.”
Smith did admit that he can make his injury worse by playing, but he’s not worried about that.
“It’s like anything, if it’s half-torn or whatever, it could tear the rest of the way,” Smith said “I’m not really concerned about it. Just going to go out there and do the best I can and see what happens.”
