Injury Update: (Paraphrased)

Popo Aumavae expected back. Hunter Kampmoyer and Cam McCormick still being evaluated. Spencer Webb and Patrick Herbert questionable. Mycah Pittman, Steve Stephens, Justin Flowe, Daewood Davis are not available. (No additional confirmation on Flowe’s reported season-ending injury)

On Players Returning From Injury:

“It’s great to have those bodies back out there. As teammates, as human beings. Really happy to see them.”

On Dye’s Big Plays:

“Travis has been a great, great teammate. A great player. I wish you could see him in practice, the way he’s energized. His competitve character adds a lot to practice.”

On Devon Williams:

“He’s really practicing hard. He’s handling every part of his processes better. We do things a certain way. I can honestly say these past two weeks he’s attacked these processes. It’s showed up.”

On Fumbles/Lost Balls:

“They have to improve. They can destroy your game and destroy your season. Our players understand how important that is. We expect to get better results.”

On Game Time:

“This game will be played this weekend. Just waiting for a game time. The only difference would be if you played later, maybe an extra walk through. We have faced bigger challenges than that this season.”

On Cam Lewis/Missed FG’s:

“I don’t think confidence is wavering. You have a really good football player who’s had a couple bad kicks. It has to be better. There aren’t any Jedi mind-tricks over here. We play the best guy.”

On Playing an OOC Game:

“Everyone has to keep an open mind. If the opportunity presents itself to play safe football, I think the players deserve that. We’d definitely be open to those opportunities.”
