Head Coach Bill O’Brien
(on how DE Jared Crick looked today) “I think he looked good and I would say that he’d be ready to go on Sunday.”
(on OLB Jadeveon Clowney’s status for Sunday) “I would say that’s more under the day-to-day category. The injuries, I just answer them by based on what I see out on the practice field. I’m not a doctor. I’m not a trainer. I just tell you kind of what I see on the practice field.”
(on what he’s seen from Jaguars QB Blake Bortles) “This guy is a big guy. He can run. He’s a very good passer. He’s got good arm strength. He’s improved a lot over his first year. You’re definitely going to improve with that type of work ethic that he has, having studied him before the draft, very, very good player.”
(on if the players are anxious to play with the extended time between the last game and Sunday) “I would say that these guys have had a good week. They’ve worked very hard this week. It’s been a tough week. Physically and mentally, these guys are ready to play a game.”
(on if the extra time means more chances to fix mistakes) “Definitely, I mean you’re able to get an extra day of practice, so Monday was our extra day which is good. As far as correcting things and making sure that everything’s improved, we won’t know that until Sunday. But I think we’ve had a good week. Now it’s time to go play the game.”
(on G Xavier Su’a-Filo’s progression) “I would say it’s been okay. There’s been some good, just need more consistency out of him. He’s working hard. He’s a good kid. It’s not easy to come back from where he was, so I’d say he’s a little bit behind, but it’s getting better every day.”
