Everyone is talking about Jared Gaither’s decision to stay on the field Sunday night rather than come out after injuring his groin. His choice to remain in the game backfired when he gave up a strip sack of Philip Rivers. This afternoon, the left tackle opened up about what was going through his mind at the time.
“I got hurt. Simple as that. I tried to fight through the injury and it didn’t work. I thought I could still perform and do the job, otherwise I wouldn’t have stayed out there. In the heat of the moment, all I was thinking about was finishing, helping the team and fighting through the injury that I felt.”
Gaither’s groin is getting better each day, and he is hopeful he can suit up vs. the Broncos.
“I’m feeling good. I’m getting better every day and I’m really looking forward to Monday night. I don’t want to gauge anything or speculate, but I’m working hard on maintaining where I’m at and getting better. My goal is to play, and that’s where my focus is.”
