 It is a different helmet but [there's] nothing special about it. No new padding or anything. Just a little different helmet, and something with the chin strap just buttoned a little bit different than the way I used to just to ensure that it is on tight.

 I'm up for going as long as [Coughlin] wants the starters in there for. It is the third preseason game and you go out there and try to play well. I think we are in good shape and we are getting guys back healthy right now, which is probably the most important thing. The later you get into the preseason, right before the first game starts, you want to be as healthy as possible.
