Jim Zorn Media Session

On tackle Stephon Heyer:

"Stepon Heyer is coming along, but he is still questionable for the game. He is not 100 percent, but fortunately we have Jon Jansen that can step in if needed. I hope he can do enough tomorrow so that we can find out even more so I can let you know a little bit more. I know he has his range of motion back, but it's very sore from the last game.

On the status of fullback Mike Sellers and wide receiver Malcolm Kelly:

"Mike Sellers is going to be fine, but Malcolm Kelly is not. He [Malcolm Kelly] still has the slows because of his ankle and has to wait until it gets better." Malcolm Kelly is getting mass treatment, but it's just taken awhile for it all to come together."

On Demetric Evans starting in place of Jason Taylor:

"He [Demetric Evans] probably will take the first snap, but it could be a community position based on where we need him more than him just playing solely defensive end. It all just depends on our scheme."

On the starting strong safety position for the game against Dallas:

"Both those guys [Reed Doughty and Chris Horton] have been working, but as far as who will get the first snap we are just waiting to see what happens tomorrow in practice. Both will be in there and depending on what personnel group we use, we can sometimes play with multiple safeties in the game. They can both be starters at the beginning of the game. Reed Doughty is our starter, but Chris Horton is going to play a lot and we will see what happens as we go along."

On the similarities of Redskins tight end Chris Cooley and Cowboys tightend Jason Witten:

"I think they both are excellent tight-ends and you have to get them the ball because they can change the outcome of the game around. He [Jason Witten] has a little more catches that Cooley, but I think we're using them in a similar manner."
