On Eric Kendricks:
He's good. He had a good week of practice. I think the head coach addressed that
yesterday (his health), but he had a good week of practice.
On if he's the all-important guy:
Eric Kendricks is a solid player. He plays, he's so physical in the run game,
but then he's so athletic when they try to pass it. So getting Eric on the
field, this game, is always, we'll be alright. He's a really natural football
player. He has a nice natural feel of dissecting the play. If it's zone read, he

On preparing for Kadeem Carey:
We put all 11 players on the field and made sure we tackle him. Bring everyone
there. He's a really good running back and he's having a great season. He's the

see what the defense presents and then they counter with what they'll be
