Q: Everything alright? We saw you leave yesterday and they said it was a family situation.
A: Yeah, everything’s good.
Q: How different will the Cowboys passing game be? There’s no (Jason) Witten and there’s no Dez Bryant. It looks kind of weird, I’m sure, when you see it on film.
A: Yeah, it looks weird. We got to prepare the way we always prepare. Expect the unexpected and just play football. We understand that they got a good running game and they’re trying to pick it up in the passing game so we’re just going to take it one play at a time.
Q: Is it a mindset that you have to watch out for the running game more?
A: Yeah it’s a mindset. We understand what they like to have lead them is the running game and we just got to play physical and fast and we’ll be okay.
Q: Does it feel like there’s a little more at stake this week? Loser of this game goes 0-2, I think it’s something like 10 teams since 2007 have started 0-2 and made the playoffs. Does it feel like there’s more on the line Sunday than a normal week?
A: I don’t look at it like that. I just look at it as another game that we got to win, that we want to win and just got out there and play hard.
Q: Both Pat (Shurmur) and James (Bettcher) said that they thought the practices this week were a lot better, a lot crisper. Do you notice that and why do you think that is?
A: We had a nice tempo, everybody flying to the ball, communicating, hand signals, everybody just flying around.
Q: Does missing a day of practice hurt you at all?
A: Not really. Situation like that, some things happen, but no, not really. Just come back and focus back on football and continue to go.
Q: Was it hard for you, I don’t know how much you want to share with what’s going on with your family situation, but just concerns about on the field were you able to put that aside and kind of –
A: Yeah, short term memory. In life things happen, just have to move forward and come back to work and pick up where I left off.
