HEAD COACH JEFF FISHER
(on the injury to Tye Hill)
I haven't talked to the trainers yet. He has a little hamstring going, so we will have to check him out. He has really had a good offseason program thus far and doing some good things out there. We will evaluate and get him back as soon as we can.
(on Derrick Morgan not being able to practice all the time)
Well he is doing a lot inside. You would like to get him out there full speed with the rest of the guys, but we don't want to risk. He got through the little hamstring episode and he has a little calf. He probably could have got some work done today, but we decided to back him down today and possibly back him down Thursday. That way he can finish up strong next week. I think he will be at full speed by next week.
(on whether he is worried about the depth at cornerback)
No. We have good numbers. It is hard to get enough reps just because of the limitations in the OTAs. With Alterraun [Verner] coming back there is not a lot of reps. We are going to continue to try to move people around, but I'm not worried about the depth chart at all right now.
(on what cornerbacks he is looking to step up)
We are looking for everybody to step up. Everybody is improving. It is very, very competitive out there. Somebody will rise to the top in time. Most likely this will be a decision we'll make probably towards the end of the preseason.
(on whether there is a chance he will drop by Chris Johnson's camp)
There is always a chance. He invited me and my invitation is still open to him for our camp. I might.
(on whether the new overtime rule will extend to the regular season)
There was some speculation that there may be a May vote regarding the regular season, but that never came about. The regular season is still up for discussion. Right now the postseason format was changed and the coaches will prepare for that and we'll wait and see what the commissioner directs us to do and what the committee decides collectively to do as far as the regular season is concerned.
(on whether he has a preference in regards to the new overtime rules be implemented for the regular season)
I think most coaches are [for regular season implementation]. I'm the same way. It would be nice to have the same overtime format in the regular season as you have in the postseason. A concern that has been voiced is if you go three or four years without an overtime game in the playoffs then all of a sudden we have a different format. It is different. I like the format. I like the format as it would relate to the regular season particularly because there is an element of sudden death throughout the format. It is not that drastic of a change. Hopefully it will iron out some of the numbers for us.
(on Ryan Durand's status)
He has a calf strain, nothing serious.
