Q: What do you know about the situation with cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and what are your thoughts on it?

A: I just heard about it just now, so I know just as much as you know, honestly.

Q: You just heard about it when you came into the locker room now?

A: Yeah.

Q: What did you see going on before halftime on the sideline during Sundayís game?

A: I donít even know, I was on the field before halftime.

Q: Did Head Coach Ben McAdoo tell the team about Rodgers-Cromartieís suspension before practice or at a meeting?

A: No, he just told us to go hard in practice.

Q: Did you realize Rodgers-Cromartie wasnít there in practice?

A: Yeah, I guess. I was just, like, looking around and I didnít see 41.

Q: Are you disappointed?

A: Iím not disappointed at all. Weíre just going to play as hard as we can with whoeverís out there.

Q: Do you feel that the team is off the rails?

A: I donít think so. I think the leaders on this team, theyíre not going to let anything like that happen. And itís just about us going out on the field and competing hard.

Q: Is it shocking to hear that a teammate has walked away from the team and been suspended?

A: A little bit. But it is what it is. I donít understand everybodyís situation. Everybodyís going through a little something. But you just do your part and do whatever they tell you to do, just try to do it to the best of your ability.

Q: Was there any indication that Rodgers-Cromartie was going to leave the team?

A: I just try to stay in my lane, man, thatís all I do. I didnít even know, I was just staying in my lane.

Q: Did you get any sense that Rodgers-Cromartie was frustrated with his role?

A: I donít think it was anything like that. Youíll have to talk to him to find that out.

Q: Do you feel like there is a little more certainty with your situation on the team now?

A: I just stay in my lane, thatís all I do.

Q: Do you expect to start this week?

A: I expect to just go hard when Iím out there on the field.

Q: Have you heard much about playing in Denver and the altitude there?

A: Yeah, youíve just got to make sure you control your breathing.

Q: Do you think this team has some fight left in them?

A: Oh, for sure. As long as there are players out there, weíre going to always have fight.
