Doug Marrone - Friday, December 14, 2018

(On when Josh Lambo was injured) "Yesterday. It happened yesterday, so we just have to make sure. We don't really know how it's going to go. It's not a lot of time between now and Sunday for an injury like that to occur. We're just going to take it day by day and right up until game time."

(On how Josh Wells has looked in practice) "He's been practicing and really done a nice job, like I said before. He was really playing the best he played prior to being injured. He has come back this week and has shown the same type of practice mentality, the same type of production. Obviously, we have to make a move here today, which we're going to meet about and see what the best move for our team is to bring him up."

(On if he looks at how injured his starting offensive line is in amazement) "No. You trying to make me feel worse than I already do? (laughter) It's just the nature of the beast. It's unfortunate. I look at it as guys that have worked really hard and guys that are really trying and their bodies … They have injuries. There is nothing you can do about it. It's part of this game, and it's a great challenge for us as coaches. It's one that I have always said to myself that I'm never going to look back and use that as an excuse for anything. When those things occur, I think that for some of the players that are getting in there and playing, I think it's a great opportunity for them to show where they are."

(On how Dawaune Smoot is progressing) "He's done some good things. I'm looking for consistency, but I think he has flashed some ability, which is encouraging. We'll just see how it goes these next couple of games."

(On if Keelan Cole has been better in practice) "Yes, he's always been a really good practice player. He gives 100 percent, probably runs more than anyone on our team. He jumps in there, takes all the reps. I have seen him become more consistent and do a much better job, so that's encouraging."
