Brian Price Talks To JoeJune 29th, 2011
Joe got a chance to chat with Bucs defensive tackle Brian Price at Josh Freeman’s minicamp this morning. Price is trying to rebound from a fractured pelvis in which he has screws surgically inserted. Price wasn’t able to participate in drills but was able to hit the weights with his teammates.
JoeBucsFan: How are you doing right now with your rehab?
Brian Price: I’m taking it easy right now. Don’t want to come up here and push it too hard. Just lifting weights right now and started jogging a few weeks ago.
Joe: Are you still in the early stages of your comeback?
Price: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I’m not trying to rush it now.
Joe: Let’s say training camp starts on time, what would be the prognosis for being able to go full out on, say, Aug. 1?
Price: I’m just trying to take it day by day, just taking it day by day.
Joe: Tell me about this zumba class you were in.
Price: Well, there were a bunch of ladies there..
Joe: That’s not a bad thing, right?
Price: (laughs) Nah, they were older ladies. I needed the support. It was a good sweat trying to keep up. I was walking into rehab one day and I saw them in there and I thought I would try it and they said it would kick your butt. And I was tired after one song, i’ll tell you that. Eventually, I was able to do the entire hour. It’s a pretty tough class. It’s crazy. you get tired so fast.
Joe: When were you able to first start working out?
Price: Oh, I was working out. It was all upper body after my first surgery.
Joe: When was that?
Price: November and my second surgery was in January but always maintained my upper body in the weight room. My lower body, I started about a month and a half ago. I get stronger every day. It’s getting better.
