(On how important pass protection is to being a third-down back)

"It's very important, I'm just here trying to define my role, earn the respect of the veterans, and just play wherever they need me to play."

(On what Derrick Henry is like on a night like tonight when he doesn't play)

"Like I said last week, guys lead by example – Derrick [Henry], Darrynton [Evans], Jeremy [McNichols], Brian [Hill], those guys are like extra coaches for me, so we kind of help each other out and give each other coaching points like, if I'm running they may see something I don't see, so we just pretty much help each other out. And all those guys are older than me so I just follow their lead and try to be better every single day, be a better version of myself."

(On if it difficult to develop chemistry with rotating quarterbacks)

"I feel like you need to be ready to go when your number's called. I'm around my coach all the time – special teams helps as well, to keep my legs going so I'm not cold on the sideline. But pretty much ready to go everytime my number's called."
