Postgame vs. Miami, August 12, 2016

Q: How is the groin?

A: I feel good. Itís just sore from practice, but itís all good now.

Q: Do you realize that everyone kind of freaked out when you got hurt?

A: I can see that happening, especially when Eli and (me) both (are being tended to). But itís nothing too serious, so donít freak out.

Q: Did you injure the groin tonight or was it something from practice?

A: Itís just been sore. Both of them have been sore, so itís nothing serious at all.

Q: Was that catch big for you or is that just something you know you can do?

A: Itís just something I know I can do. It came up big in the situation, but thatís what Iím supposed to do. Thatís what I get paid to do. Thatís what I expect of myself.

Q: What happened on that interception?

A: I felt like I could go up and at least disrupt that ball. I felt like I should have went to go catch at the highest point. I felt like I had him beat enough to where I could make an over-the-shoulder catch, but he got up pretty high on that one. He did a good job playing it.

Q: Does it make you feel good that you were featured so much in the offense tonight?

A: I feel like that just comes with practicing. What you do in practice kind of carries over to the game. If you show youíre capable of making those types of plays, theyíre not going to hesitate to feed you the ball. Itís just preseason, so weíve got a lot of work to do. Iíve still got a lot of work to do. Weíll see what happens in the regular season.

Q: Are you excited to finally get on the field in a game with Eli, Odell and Victor?

A: I canít wait. But Iím going to take it one thing at a time and focus on this next game and focus on practice coming up.
He gets it.

You're not kidding. You really have to like this guy. I wouldn't use the term magical but you can feel he has the goods. From training camp reviews apparently he brings it every single day of practice. These two quotes personify everything we've heard and seen about him so far. This is not a typical rookie and that sure as heck wasn't a typical rookie catch in their first preseason game.

Q: Was that catch big for you or is that just something you know you can do?
A: Itís just something I know I can do. It came up big in the situation, but thatís what Iím supposed to do. Thatís what I get paid to do. Thatís what I expect of myself.

And Eli will feed him for sure. We will not even remotely miss Ruben Randle. Somewhere I think OBJ is salivating at how they can take the top and bottom off of a defensive backfield.
