    "The doctor has released him to practice. That's the word. That's the word. Obviously, our quarterbacks in practice are never touched, but he's been released to practice."

    "I think very probable. I don't think there's a question. I'm not going to talk anymore about it. I don't know how I can make it anymore clear."

    "That line, they've really done an outstanding job, until this point."

    "It's been as good a group, and as physical, we've had since '02 in my opinion."

    "It's a tough, tough daggone league."

    "I really believed we were going to win that football. I had no doubt in my mind, and you know what? More importantly, our players didn't. Our players had no doubt that they were going to win that football game."

    "I think just the faith I have in the seniors on this team, and the rest of the team. That we'll go up there and play as hard and be as focused as we've been in the last three games."

    "Coach Dixon does an unbelievable job with those wideouts. They've got to block him... he really is an outstanding teacher."

    "He's a mature kid. He's got a bunch of reps. He knows the offense as good as our coaches do right now."

    "If you're cleared for practice, I can't imagine... I think it's a moot point."
