“He’s been in every meeting,” LaFleur said Wednesday. “He’s been engaged. So, it’s factual he’s no longer with his guys out on the field. That’s the dynamic that you never know. Nonetheless we’re fortunate to personal a man that has bought a ton of reps under his belt, has played a ton of ball, so we’re pretty assured that offered he checks out successfully he can exit there and play at a high level.”
