Biggs adds that the 29-year old Hillenmeyer did not travel with the team for the pre-season finale due to an illness, and left Sunday's season-opener against the Detroit Lions with an "undisclosed illness".
"Honestly, I am feeling better," Hillenmeyer told "The Mully & Hanley Show" on WSCR-AM 670 on Tuesday, according to Biggs. "I don't know exactly the details of all that. You know how (head coach) Lovie (Smith) is about talking about anything health-related. We'll leave it at that."
"I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious."
