What has become of kicker Phil Brabbs? After his game-winning
field goal in the season opener last fall with Washington, he
seemed to slowly fade out of the scene. Now this year, he has only
been seen on the sideline, not dressed in uniform. While it had
been shown that his abilities were not always as reliable as some
of the other kickers, it’s still hard to see him out of the game
completely.

Andrea,

We caught up with Phil after Saturday’s game, and here’s what he
had to say:

“I got hurt about 13 weeks ago, so I’ve just kind of been
nursing the injury, getting rehab. I just started kicking a little
bit now, (and I’m) just trying to get back out there.

My goal is to get back out on the field. This is my last year,
I’m a fifth-year senior, so this is my last go at it. But Troy
(Nienberg) is kicking the ball off really well and Garrett (Rivas)
is doing all the field goals, so if I do come back, I’m going to
have to come back strong.”
