Vick Says He Feels 'Tremendous Hurt'
According to the Associated Press, Michael Vick said in a televised interview scheduled to air Sunday that he feels "some tremendous hurt behind what happened."
Vick, interviewed for "60 Minutes" on CBS by veteran sportscaster James Brown, said he "should have took the initiative to stop it all.... I didn't--I didn't step up. I wasn't [a] leader."
According to the AP account of the interview, Vick said he cried at night in his prison cell and when asked by Brown if he was more concerned about his NFL career or the dogs he injured, Vick said: "Football don't even matter."
Vick missed the last two NFL seasons while serving his federal sentence for his role in a dogfighting operation in Virginia.
He has been conditionally reinstated by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, allowing him to sign with a team.
