“If it was up to me, I’d play on Sunday,” Landry said Friday. “As of right now, it’s out of my hands. I would like to play Sunday. If I don’t, it’s not my decision. So ask coach.”

The anticipated backfield combination of Landry and Oshiomogho Atogwe has only been together for four games this year. While Atogwe is expected to return to the lineup Sunday after missing two games, Landry did not sound as hopeful.

Landry initially injured his Achilles last November. Twelve months later, it’s still a problem.

“If it’s sore today, that’s still two days to heal for Sunday. So if you don’t feel that I’m prepared enough to play for Sunday or whatever, it’s not my call, not my decision,” he said. “But as of right now... if they want to let me play, they’ll let me play. If not, it’s not my call.”

“I’m not upset,” he continued. “It’s just frustrating. The Achilles is getting back sore, it’s a big game coming up and if I don’t play, I’ll be kind of hurt behind it. But we got more games left.”
