(On how he felt after head coach Doug Marrone acknowledged in the locker room postgame his accomplishment of going over 1,000 yards and if it was awkward) "It wasn't awkward at all. I am grateful that he did that, and before the game was even over, all the guys were coming up to me and saying 'Congratulations.' And, I mean, all those guys are behind me, and we were hoping I was going to get it in the first quarter. But, I mean, it wasn't awkward at all."
(On if he knows he is one of four undrafted rookies to reach 1,000 rushing yards in a season) "I did know that."
(On what he thinks is going to be the best thing for him to do next week against the Baltimore Ravens' defense) "Come out and play harder. Obviously, this game, we didn't come out and play as hard as we normally do. We didn't get our run game going early. And I think that's a big thing for us, getting that going, and we score more points."
(On what it means to him to be an example for future undrafted free agents fighting to make NFL rosters) "Like you said, keep fighting, that's all it is. You don't get drafted, it sucks, but once you get on a team, it's still kind of the same feeling, other than not having your name called on TV. But yeah, just keep going out there and grinding and wait for your opportunity."
(On his 47-yard run) "You guys can go back and look at it. I mean, all I needed was a little bit (of space). It was kind of like an outside zone thing and the O-line opened up a hole, and I just had to make one guy miss. He kind of clipped me a little bit, but I was able to break it and go."
(On if it was nice to see some open room to run after being bottled up early in the game) "Yeah, it's always nice to see grass like that. Some of the plays were just, they had a good defensive plan. They shot gaps, and I mean, they just did well on defense."
(On if there was a point he was thinking he was going to score a touchdown on that 47-yard run) "Once I saw open field, I thought I would. For a second, I thought, once that guy had clipped my foot, it was kind of like, okay, let's see how far I can go. But, I mean, I thought I would. I tried to hesitate on them a little bit, but it didn't work."
