Head Coach Gary Kubiak


Head Coach Gary Kubiak

(on WR Jacoby Jones and RB Ben Tate's health) "Jacoby (Jones), we sent him over for x-rays here at lunchtime and haven't found out anything. As far as Ben (Tate), basically he didn't do anything this morning and we're hoping he's ready to go tomorrow so we'll see."


(on the team's injuries) "We've have a few nicks this morning. (Rashad) Butler had a little hamstring tweak so he'll be day-to-day. We had a few guys nicked up, the young receiver Lester (Jean) got hit in the head pretty good on that one route he ran, so we'll see how he is tomorrow but other than that just bumps and bruises."


(on DE Antonio Smith's health) "Yeah, I forgot about him, he lost a lot of weight and actually came in this morning under weight and lost some more at practice; obviously you're going to lose some at practice and he just got gassed so we had to give him some IVs but he'll be back."


(on RB Arian Foster) "I would say Arian (Foster) right now, you still won't see him for a couple of days, so is there any hope towards Monday? You know, the further we go, the bleaker that looks from that standpoint but yet we're dealing with just a tweaked hamstring so there's no doubt that he's going to be back and we're taking it day-to-day. I'd like to think he'll be ready Monday but I'm not going to do anything crazy with him so we'll see."


(on ILB Brian Cushing) "It's a little like what we did with DeMeco (Ryans). It's just that DeMeco is a little bit further along. With DeMeco we kind of brought him along slowly and he's had his best three days the last three days. Cush (Brian Cushing) basically is starting from scratch and did two periods this morning. Hopefully he improves tomorrow but hopefully every day it's a little bit more. So he came out this morning feeling fine, so that's a good sign."


(on QB Matt Leinart's playing time Monday night against the New York Jets) "Well he's going to play a great deal obviously; preseason is his season, so to speak, so he will play a great deal. He's going to play against one of the top-three defenses in the game and they're very active from that standpoint but he needs to play. Matt (Leinart) needs to get back out there and get in the fire so to speak ,and we all do but it's a big couple of weeks for Matt."
