Coach Mularkey's Friday Practice Transcript




(on the team's injuries)

Practice, still (Derrick) Morgan, we're going to rule him out. (Johnathan) Cyprien did not practice, we're going to put him as questionable. He's closer than Morgan. Limited was (Phillip) Supernaw, we're going to list him as questionable as well. Other than that, full go for everybody else.

(on having Marcus Allen at practice)

Yeah, I'm a fan. Really great player - still looks like he can play.

(on the defense having success with stopping big plays)

I think it's a combination of a lot of things. Obviously, it's a goal every week. I think it has to do with the scheme. I think Coach (Dick) LeBeau does a good job of trying to prevent big plays. Our guys just executing their jobs within the scheme, whether it's the pass rush or the coverage or the tackling. Our tackling has improved too, that's prevented big plays. A lot of things have made that happen. 

(on if outside linebacker Erik Walden will once again fill in for outside linebacker Derrick Morgan)

Same rotation, nothing changed from last week.

(on how happy he is with the week in Arizona)

Pretty happy with these guys. We've had to adjust a few things today, like starting in the bubble and coming out here, a little bit later yesterday than we normally have on Thursday. They haven't blinked, it's the same crew that shows up on Sundays that doesn't let a lot of things affect their preparation. I've been very happy with the way we've gotten these three practices in, they've been very good.

(on if this is a big game for tight end Delanie Walker)

He approaches every game like he's got something to prove, which he doesn't. That's how, and why, he's so successful is the way he approaches the game. I don't think this is any bigger than any other one.
