WR Dwayne Harris

December 24, 2015

Q: How did your shoulder feel after practice today?

A: It felt pretty good.

Q: Any concerns about going Sunday?

A: No, not at all.

Q: Do you look at this as an opportunity with Odell out to show you can pick up the slack?

A: Iím just excited to go out and play football. Odell is just one piece of the puzzle and weíve got other guys that can play, too. Weíre just going to go out, do our job and play football.

Q: Do you think there will be any letdown not having him out here?

A: No, not at all. Weíve got guys who can make plays. Odell is definitely a playmaker on this team and guys have to double-cover him or put extra care on him, but it just gives us guys on this team an opportunity to play.

Q: How different do you think the Minnesota defense is going to look without Odell out there drawing much attention?

A: Iím pretty sure itís not going to look that much different. Weíve still got guys who can run routes and go make plays. Itís not just one guy, but everybody.

Q: Do you have to cutback with your shoulder? Like if youíre going to play more on offense, cutback on special teams?

A: I think itís probably going to be a game time decision how much I play on special teams and offense. Right now weíre just planning about how I feel.

Q: And thatís good?

A: Yeah, I feel good. I practiced today, went through practice. I felt pretty good throughout it, so itís a pretty nice day.

Q: When you guys get to Minnesota on Saturday, are you going to watch the Washington-Philadelphia game?

A: Pretty sure people will be tuning into it. Itís going to be a game Ö we definitely will pay close to the game just in case what happens in that game definitely determines our future.
Sounds like it's a go,

Big fan of Harris throughout the course of this season. Tough as nails and has taken some big shots. He's a game changer on special teams. For all the flak Reese gets for his signings, this guy is the real deal. Need more like him.
Does anyone else get the impression

Some of the WR's are annoyed or jealous at all the attention Beckham gets in the media?

Who knows? Have Vikes' players been annoyed or jealous over AP? Or Pats with Brady? Or any Superstar?

other players, Eli and specifically other WR's about Beckham and its they way they answer that has me wondering. Of course, I only read the transcripts and never hear it on audio, so that could have something to do with it.

OBJ, just as golfers get annoyed being asked about Tiger. Guy shoots a 64 and walks off the course with a 3-stroke lead, and the first question is, "What did you think of Tiger's round?"

There aren't many smart reporters.
