Raiders.com: What have you been doing since the back injury?

Raiders.com: How frustrating was 2009 for you?
Gallery: It's just one of those things. It's something you can't control. They were kind of some freak injuries. It's football, you deal with it, you get healthy and you come back.
Raiders.com: You seem to have settled in at left guard, what do you think of playing that position and what do you think you can get done this season?
Gallery: I like it. In this league, you have to get in one spot and work and get consistent in that spot. I've been there for three or four years now. That's all I can ask for. We're just working on making this line better than we were last year and help this team win.
Raiders.com: What else have you been doing in the off-season?
Gallery: I've just been rehabbing and enjoying my family, getting away for a little bit.
Raiders.com: Any non-football plans for the summer?
Gallery: Getting set up for our Car Cruise fundraiser, we'll have [details] out here soon, it'll be June 12th. We'll be raising money for military families.
