Q: You do a little bit of both, but if you have to shadow (Chiefs Wide Receiver) Tyreek Hill, are you up for that challenge and what will it be like?

A: I'm definitely up for the challenge if the coaches want me to do that. I'm not going to say no. I'm not going to turn it down. He's definitely an explosive receiver. We're all ready for the task on Monday.

Q: Is this one of those things where you guys have been watching their offense, even when you're not playing them, the highlights are everywhere. Do you kind of get going and get the juices flowing when you play a team like this that can do as much as they can offensively?

A: Like I said, they're an explosive offense. They have many ways that they can attack you, so it's definitely a challenge for us. That's why we play in the NFL. We look forward to challenges, so we're looking forward to the Chiefs on Monday.

Q: There are obviously a ton of great players in the NFL. Is there only one Tyreek Hill? Is he so unique that nothing you do against anybody else really compares just because of his speed?

A: I would definitely say he's a unique player in this league because of his speed, and his explosiveness, and his quickness, and the fact that he can track the ball and catch the ball downfield. A lot of times, faster guys in this league have a hard time tracking the ball, so his uniqueness to be able to do all of that makes him definitely a weapon that we've got to keep our eyes on at all times.

Q: How comfortable are you in the slot if you have to go in there?

A: I'm comfortable playing wherever. That's what I watch film for. I prepare myself week-in and week-out to be ready to play wherever they ask me to play.

Q: A bunch of (Chiefs Quarterback Patrick) Mahomes' turnovers have been deflections and things like that. What have you seen there? Maybe he's not throwing the ball to the wrong place, but is there an opportunity for you guys to get your hands on the ball this week?

A: I think when you throw the ball as many times as they do and, they play with a lot of freedom to do things on the field, sometimes you're going to get turnovers taking those chances. When you take chances, there's high risk, high reward. So, I know some throws are kind of side arm, that's why they've been able to get deflections and whatnot, and then sometimes it's just the defenders are making a good play. It's a little bit of both.

Q: How do you prepare for what he does out here when a lot of it's, I don't want to say school yard football, but it seems like it's the play breaks down and he still makes a big play? How do you prepare for that?

A: You can try to simulate it through practice with certain drills and whatnot, where they have us go for prolonged period of times, but it's kind of hard to prepare for it because it's the game. It's different guys out there, different type of speed. You've just got to be ready, make sure you condition, make sure you eat right before the game, get you a good night's rest, and just go out there and play.

Q: Have you ever played in Kansas City?

A: I've never played in Kansas City before. This is my first time.

Q: What have you heard, and what are your expectations for a night game there? It's supposed to be a pretty good atmosphere type of place.

A: I heard it gets loud, so I'm looking forward to it. The loudest game that I played in was my first one in Denver. It was back in 2016. That was the loudest game I played in, so if it beats that, I'm kind of looking forward to it. I haven't been around a crowd like that in a while.

Q: It shouldn't be that loud when you're on the field though, right?

A: It shouldn't, but you never know.

Q: If it gets loud, that means they're scoring on you guys, so you're trying to avoid that one.

A: We're trying to avoid that for sure. We're trying to keep them as quiet as possible.
