FAMOUS QUOTES about Darian Cooper

Kirk Ferentz Kirk Ferentz  on 11/25/2015 - Link to source
We did that because he's earned that, and it was all about us paying him back a little bit. He's run the whole race. He's gone through a lot of tough stuff, and I talk about that all the time when you talk about guys that go through injuries. People don't understand just how lonely it is and how hard it is to fight back from that, so that was like the least that we could do for him. He wanted to try to do it, so I was so happy.

- Playing one snap in the final game after returning from injury.
