Default Hollings Impressive Early

Quote:
Hollings has been impressive this week, showing good vision and speed around the corner, as well as some receiving ability. He can trace that to the comfort he finally feels with the knee.

"It feels a whole lot better," Hollings said. "I think right now I can play a full game without my knee giving me trouble. My reaction is getting down to the point where Iím not worried about my knee."

Hollings surprised most on the team with his accelerated road to recovery last year. But ask most around the game and they'll tell you a player really doesn't feel fully recovered from an ACL until the second season back. Colts running back Edgerrin James is the most prominent recent example. And Hollings agrees.

"I understand it now," he said. "A lot of guys that I played with in college were telling me that it wasnít going to be the same right at first. But you just have to work back into it and get better.

"I think itís more a difference in the belief. You're really just trying not to hurt it or agitate it again. Youíre kind of taking it easy. But when you get that extra time and your comfort level goes back up, you can go out and play without thinking about it."

That comfort level appears to be rising for Hollings every day. And with that comfort comes confidence.

"I don't have to think as much about what I've got to do," Hollings said. "I can make plays and play football,"
