"We made adjustments but we got it done," fellow linebacker Dee Ford said. "My heart goes out to him. It's hard. But we're going to keep moving. That's life. But we're going to miss him."
"Before the draft, I told myself it doesn't matter where I'm drafted because it's out of my hands. I can't control that," Ford said. "I can control my work ethic and my craft. I can control what I do. So I have goals in mind that I've already set. And until I'm done in the NFL, I won't cross my finish line."
