“I was hurt; I wanted to go out there and play and battle with my team,” Rhodes said. “But I couldn’t. I was on the sideline watching, but I still cheered them on after the victory.
“I want to play the last two games not only because the coaches want me to play, but I just love the game of football. I just don’t like sitting out.”
Defensive coordinator Alan Williams didn’t intend to play safety Harrison Smith, who was activated off injured reserve, as much as he did Sunday. Smith played 61 of the defense’s 69 snaps against the Eagles while coming off a turf toe injury.
“Too many to come back, we have to watch that,” Williams said. “Hopefully not get him that many this time, but still get him in the ballgame and get him going.”
Williams said Smith continuously told the staff he was fine against the Eagles’ no-huddle offense.
He didn’t think Smith was winded because of the long layoff and felt the safety played well.
“He said, ‘Coach, I felt like I’ve been to a college workout,’ ” Williams said. “That means his body was really sore.”
