Cornerback Adoree' Jackson
Q: Was it that they got you in the knee and you hyperextended it a little bit?
A: That's all it was. It was one of those things. I tried to make a juke, thought it was good, he came down low. Leg was just in the ground. He got me that way. Nothing crazy like that. We were just out there playing ball.
Q: Adoree, you had five guys knocked out of the game today by injury and a quick turnaround on Thanksgiving down in Dallas. How many more injuries can you guys sustain? Next man up can only go so far.
A: For us, that's what this whole season has been about. Understand that even when you get all of these reps in OTAs or in camp, make sure everybody is on the same page. And when we bring new people in, make sure they are all of one accord. Like you said, next man up mentality. Just have to be ready. Regardless of the situation, what may play out. Just keep fighting, keep battling and don't let the level of play drop.
Q: What can you say about the guys that step in for you and (Cornerback) Fabian (Moreau)?
A: I appreciate them. I like what they put out there and like what they do. It's never one of those things you just think something crazy like that is going to happen and when it does, go out there play your game and play ball. I feel like they did a great job. Obviously, we didn't get the W today. Just get ready for this Thursday and put everything together.
Q: How do you approach the short week? Do you try to forget about this or do you really chew on what happened and try to get it right?
A: You got to. You've got to forget about it. But at the same time, keep that taste in your mouth a little bit. I understand you don't like how it ended up. Guys came out to play. They were going crazy making plays. For us, you can't harp on it for too long because we play in three days. You soak it in and think about this for not even 24 hours. For the rest of the day. Watch a little film on Dallas whenever they get done playing and go from there.
