Doug Marrone - Friday, November 9, 2018

(On how he feels about having A.J. Bouye and Quenton Meeks out for the game) "We have [Tyler] Patmon and D.J. [Hayden] coming back. Those guys have played out there before and obviously, those guys are going to go out there and play. We feel confident in them."

(On Leonard Fournette's status and how he has made it through the week) "So far, no issues. That's the one thing that has gone on. I think it is important. A lot of times you will see running backs, maybe during the preseason, not get a lot of snaps in a game, but they are practicing and going. I think that is a little bit of an easier transition than someone who hasn't been practicing and going. We will see on Sunday, but he has done everything that we asked him to do. No setbacks, really nothing. Right now, he is completely healthy at this time at approximately 12:24 p.m." (laughter)

(On the injuries at tight end) "Yes, we have had a lot of injuries at that position and the guys that are able to go – they are banged up – and we are just trying to make sure we get them to Sunday. Those guys are all 50-50."

(On if he has an idea of which two of the three -- Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Josh Wells and Niles Paul -- would be ready to be activated to the active roster from Injured Reserve) "I think all three of them… We'll see where we are. You have to see where you are injury-wise and what's going on and how people are playing. That's how I look at it. Obviously, if someone was a starter, you want them back first. A lot of it depends on how they are, when they come back and are they ready to go. That's why you see those players out there. They are rehabbing right now, they are not with us, coaches I mean. We're looking to transition them back in and we will have a better feel for them when they come back to practice."
