"In terms of my knee, my knee feels great, still a hamstring issue right now. Once thats gone Ill be back out there."The knee has been a somewhat chronic issue the last eight years, he said"I mean, its always something that Ive had to manage throughout my career," Seymour said. "My knee is not a problem. I feel like Ive got another 100,000 miles on it, but in terms of my hamstring, its a different issue and Im working hard with the trainers. Its something that Ive had throughout my career. Ive always had to manage my hamstrings, got so much torque when I get down in my stance, coming off the ball."But Im sure Ill be back when its ready."
