On Tuesday New York Jets defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson addressed the media. Here is the transcript courtesy of the Jets.

On what happened last night during the game…

I was just pass rushing and he came up to pass protect and I ran into him the first time, the ball was thrown and he approached me, threw a blow at me and that’s what it was. I retaliated. Was it a smart move? No. Do I regret it? No. It’s football and I am not going to let somebody try to take advantage of me. It’s over with now. That’s past me, so I am just getting ready for Philly now.

On if rookies have to learn how to control their emotions during the game…

Definitely. It was a rookie mistake. I let my anger get the best of me there, but that is something that I have to learn from and move forward with.

On his preseason so far…

I think I had a good preseason. I just wanted to come in and just try to work week in and week out and improve from the first game. I just want to keep doing that this season, move forward and progressing every week.
