Hampton eyes Denver game as elbow heals

Nose tackle Casey Hampton has his sights set on one thing – returning in time to play against the Denver Broncos in the season opener on Sept. 9 on NBC’s Sunday Night Football.

“My thing is to be ready for the first game,” said Hampton. “That is what I am aiming for. I just need to keep progressing. My goal is to be out there for the first game. That is what I am working toward. I can see myself being out there.”

Hampton’s left elbow has also bothered him and he said he recently, “got the elbow fixed,” and it’s healing.

“It’s been an issue,” said Hampton. “When you get to my age everything kind of hurts a little bit. It was something that was nagging me, and didn’t go away so I had to take care of it.

“I just got the elbow fixed so I have to let it heal up and let it get right. It’s just been bothering me for a while. I have to let it heal up for a little bit. It’s cool. I’ll be out there pretty soon, hopefully. I’m not worried about my knee at all.”

Casey can take his time, we'll need him as fresh as possible in the rotation as the season wears on
