Whenever he's available, we'll start working him in and get him up to speed, get him the reps. He's been in the meetings. So he knows what we're doing. We're going to start over pretty much in training camp with our installation. So a lot of it will be review, and then we'll add some things as we go that we didn't cover in OTAs and the coaches' sessions. He's gotten the mental work in, in the class room. So it'll just be getting the physical reps. When he's ready, he's ready. We'll work him in."
