That's what Giants WR Domenik Hixon insists he'll feel when he sets foot on the FieldTurf at MetLife Stadium on Monday against Chicago.
Hixon suffered a season-ending torn ACL injury during the Giants' first practice at the new stadium last June.
Hixon rebounded from the injury and, due to Steve Smith's abrupt departure to the Eagles, begins the season as the Giants' No. 3 receiver.
When asked on Saturday if he was concerned about stepping back on the FieldTurf for the first time on Monday, Hixon smiled.
"No, not at all," he said. "I'm ready to go."
