“We’re all going to get opportunities to play. We’re all going to get chances to make plays. It’s just when you make those plays that matter. Staying healthy is always the big key, but it’s not just staying healthy and being out there with my teammates. If I’m not making any plays, there’s no point. So the goal is to be productive through those 16 games.”~C.J. Anderson.
