It really wasn't a big hit but, again, he's coming back from a major injury and there are a million things going through his mind and ball security was one of the last ones. He needs to do a better job of taking care of that football. He did a nice job in the pass game and in protections and all that stuff. Kevin's still working his way back from a major injury."
