Rob Chudzinski On Training Camp Friday In Berea

Opening statement

“Just to start out with the medical report, Kellen Davis and Phil Taylor were both out today. They had a chance to work on the side and they are both day to day. They shouldn’t be too much longer. David Nelson worked back in today and got some individual work. We will evaluate him and continue to evaluate him. Hopefully we’ll get to upgrade him as we are going. Oniel Cousins rolled his ankle in practice and we will evaluate that afterward and we will see where we are at with him for tomorrow going forward.”

On Taylor’s injury: “I’m expecting him back in the next few days. He feels good and he worked hard on the side with the trainers. All reports I’ve gotten are pretty positive.”

On Nelson’s size: “He’s a big guy. He has big hands. He’s been productive. He’s played and he has experience. We’ll just have to get him out there. He hasn’t been in the system, so obviously he’s just been learning through meetings. Just getting out there and going through the route tree was a good starting point today.”

On a lot of interceptions and play calls: “Whatever it is we won’t put them in tomorrow. The past two days have been large installs for us. We were working a lot of third-down situations. This was a third-and-long day. We’ll just have to look at the tape and make the corrections off of it and move on.”

On the defense having a good day and the offense having a bad day: “I think the secondary made some really nice plays. They really broke well on the ball on a couple of them. Again, we will just have to look at the tape and see where we go from there on both sides of the ball.”

On Johnson Bademosi breaking up plays: “I think he’s making progress on a day-to-day basis. It’s a matter of getting comfortable in the new position. It’s something that he’s never played before. I think he’s progressing. Everybody is going to have ups and downs and everybody is going to have good days and bad days, and good plays and bad plays. The key is learning, progressing and going in the right direction.”

On Tashaun Gipson: “I’ve been pleased with Tashaun. He’s showing a lot from a coverage standpoint. The last couple of days just watching him, obviously we put the pads on tomorrow, so we will get a chance to see all the guys pop. From a tackling standpoint that’s where we will get to see some of the physical things and we will get a little bit more of a chance to evaluate some guys.”

On what he specifically likes about Tashaun: “He’s a solid player. He is smart. He works at it. He understands football. He has a good football sense. He’s showing some good coverage skills out here.”

On how much hitting fans can expect to see Saturday: “We’re going to hit. We won’t be tackling to the ground. That doesn’t mean that nobody will be on the ground, but we are not tackling to the ground. We’ll hit. We’ll block. We’ll thud up and wrap up. It’ll be good work for us. It’s about time to get the pads.”

On wanting to see one position group more than another: “The guys up front. They have been trying to block each other and trying to get off blocks. We are being careful and we are working together to protect each other. That’s the key to what you want to do when you don’t have the pads on. Now that we have the pads on we still want to protect each other and be smart, but you can cut it loose and you can see the physicality. The finish is what you really get a chance to see.”

On how often the team will practice in pads: “We will judge it going forward, but two days at least for sure, but we will judge it and go from there.”
