Q: Do you think you could’ve corrected the fumble?
A: Yeah. You’ve just got to hold the ball high and tight and keep it up and it happens to best of them and it’s something I know that can’t happen. You’re disappointed in yourself when it happens, but it happens to the best of them.

Q: What did you see from yourself in kick returns?
A: Just that they were blocking and executing well and just that we were real close to taking one all the way back.

Q: You felt like you almost had one last night?
A: Yeah.

Q: Which one was that?
A: The one right before half and then the one at the end of the game.

Q: What do you think you have to do to get back on the field? What do you have to show your coaches?
A: The coaches said just have a good week of practice and fight back. I don’t think they totally gave up on me. It was just in that moment and the opening game and me having a critical moment like that at the beginning, they didn’t want me in there. It showed me how important it was to hold on to the ball and that will probably explain why they didn’t give me offensive plays.

Q: Did they ever tell you that this is why you’re not getting back on the field?

A: After you don’t get back on the field because of that, you kind of put one and two together. It’s not hard to understand that, but it happens in football and turnovers are apart of football, but it’s definitely not something that you want to have your name beside.

Q: Was that a blindside hit? Did you not see him coming?

A: No. I saw him coming. It was just a good shot on the ball and I saw it on film and it wasn’t more like the ball was loose. It was just a good shot on the ball.

Q: You didn’t mind the way you were carrying the ball in that spot?

A: No. Not from what I saw on film.
