Jim Zorn Scrimmage Media Session

On Jeremy Bridges and Scott Burley's injuries:

"We didn't have many injuries. Bridges has a little ankle sprain, it is a low ankle sprain. Then Burley got some cramps."

On the right tackle position:

"Well those guys that sat out, we're going to try to get them geared up. I don't know if Mike Williams is going to be ready but we're got to have him play on Thursday' so I'm trying to rest him. Stephon Heyer will be back tomorrow. I'm trying to get him geared up so he can play as well."

On rookie defensive ends Brian Orakpo and Jeremy Jarmon:

"It was excellent because it's hard to block. That was one of the problems that we had in our passing game because those guys are so quick up the field. But that is a great opportunity for us to get better. We're going to see speed like that some point during this season so we need to block it. There is no way we can just let it go and say, 'Well, he's too fast.'"

On how the offense did today:

"I thought Jason [Campbell] did well. Our first two tight ends that came in there, Fred Davis played hard he played well. He loves to play football, so does [Todd] Yoder. We didn't use [Chris] Cooley but they played well. I'm thinking our backs ran real hard. I wish [Anthony] Alridge would've held onto the ball there but he is going to get more opportunities and he's going to learn how to hang onto that football. But he ran hard. I think that all the backs did what they were supposed to do. Chris Samuels felt great out there. One of the things that I've been concerned about it is that he's been a little banged up. Ee took a little fluid off his knee but he played great and worked hard. Other than that our young guys came along. Marko Mitchell caught a lot of balls and young Keith Eloi scored. We tried to spread the ball around a little bit and got some completions. I was really impressed with the backs that were in there, Ladell Betts, Rock Cartwright and all those guys."
