Hayward couldn’t do much to speed his recovery except get treatment and try to avoid frustration over being unable to help his teammates.

"It’s difficult," he said. "You feel like you’re not doing anything, like you’re just standing around. At times, you feel like you aren’t really part of the team because you don’t go through practice."

Of course, Hayward endured some good-natured teasing from his teammates — even close friend Jeremy Evans.

"Jeremy said I was on vacation," Hayward laughed, "and he’s supposed to be my boy."
