-- they. With the -- we can everything we will. Hit some of these guys back we'll have. Nick Miller Kevin limited role from the broken tibia just challenge and a limited role. Darren McFadden also being limited role. And Robert Gallery be limited. Cornell Green will still be day to day so we're not quite there in terms of working with. His recovery Tony Stewart still day to day from a pec strain. Jon Alston. Got a little neck strain and in a mild concussion in the game so he'll be dated is well. Ricky Brown will be out. Greg Ellis is gonna have a knee scope on Wednesday so he won't be. Probably. Into next week before really know where -- with that -- Gerard Warren has a foot bruise. And should be limited and Chris Johnson's day to day with -- groin strain. In the course of the game. Really -- had a plan to go win when the football. Need to make tour three child plays in terms of giving ourselves and some. You know plays a substance offensively we weren't able to do that we're able to convert. Fairly well third short. -- defense was much better keep up to three runs the pot but really in the little had a real huge affect almost morals for a third down conversion. And we wanted to see turn it over to our secondary have them covered their their receivers we didn't do very good job of that special teams why is much much better I thought. Probably our best effort of the season thus far terms of kicking covering and returning. But really came down us being -- government secondary and create some pass. Good effort by our team there's no issue that way. They're excited about that -- We bring -- Diego is being reported feeling -- I. Well I think we have to be. You know -- get some balance and in many ways but we've got used to run game to. To -- the past I think that's what your ups and push them. And. Exactly what. It. -- -- changes nothing change no common a skid and very healthy offense you know maybe -- two starting offensive linemen back you're gonna -- Starting tailback back arguably your best receiver back. Another kick returner nick Miller back I think all those things are conducive to us having more success offensively so. We start that the second thing is the self scout. You know terms of what were we have been struggling and really break it down it's hard to do that. As you get into the game weeks and you worry about the next opponent we worked on that already have some ideas and then to be some new things that we and so. When you get that name is even being. Mostly returned Oregon we and then as the receivers well and so -- And most. I think personal start -- with him as a returner. In his second me. Secondly I think it would come as an extra receiver because obviously with him he is active. You know that would give us an extra person. There. He's done both nor did them both in the pre season but certainly -- you know. First start with that kickoff return I like it now because it gives some competition with he and John Holland. Actually hit pretty good day yesterday in terms he can hit it for the first time so. I'm so that. -- -- -- It yeah and and make sure go through you know proper course of action here and and there -- things okay. Most of it seems to be more the next frame but you know closer to a concussion symptoms. A very about office -- -- bit of severe strain. Well Matt was terrific yesterday I mentioned after the game we you know both the young defensive lineman. Shaughnessy and Bryant -- you in this excellent play this year and met got an opportunity to play more probably in this plan. And did very well you know goes first sack I think two -- three tackles for losses held the edge. Disrupting the quarterback to the time so really for young guy just contingent that are better production very. All going to happen all through a lot of things as of years. Better that -- at 254 yards and one of them feeling the second half it was made one driving wonderful heat and humidity. Really what we're editors. The first step we were calling defense -- -- -- you know check him out or do for the defense some models and probably over -- a little bit. Want to sometimes getting ourselves a little bit better position and all that. In the second half called it later. -- Well I made that release a statement. Yesterday -- -- -- -- Again -- released a statement on this issue yesterday -- -- We have not had discussion. Here. And -- well. -- -- Two hours. Rule that. Why I think he can't think for one you're losing your best offensive linemen gives you a lot of solidity -- side. I think it'll help open the game even more immediately receiver that can impact the game. You know those little things that lead Donnelly just two more yards but obviously -- more points with well. You realize how she was so sure about. I remember remember when -- all kind of -- -- -- store which has lose in the pre season that was him practice so. Albeit a pre season game against styles but then we scored 31 points list and whose lineup now. Not saying runs scored 31 points -- return but. It gives us a guy who's proven and you know last year particularly in the last few weeks. He really came on this football player and I thought he picked it up and can't turn -- -- -- You know you that you might just be you know a little bit more three receiver stuff you know I think it may lend itself. -- It. We are right now but right now it's walking around right now it's you know had a week off of it basically. So as we go to work this week you know we want really -- cure this team in terms of getting it back healthy. -- Ought to some extent but you know to some extent yes but I think yesterday here we are without those players and you know we had the the right plan and we just weren't able to get those two or three plays of substance on the ball that you have to have in this league you know to score some points and went. Score sixteen points really without any real passing it.
