Transcript - Practice (Dec. 28, 2018)

On TE Hunter Henry:

"He's been looking good. Today, he was a little sore, which is to be expected, but he's right on track."

On if Henry could play in the postseason:


On what Henry needs to do to be able to play in the postseason:

"We just don't want to rush him out there too soon, but he's looked good in practice, he's looked good in individual drills. He wants to play, so we'll see."

On if the team is able to have padded practices in the postseason:

"I think, right now at this point in our season that we're done with padded practices, but never say never."

On getting WR Mike Williams consistently involved in the offense:

"I think he has been pretty consistent in doing his job all season. It's just that there are going to be some weeks where [WR] Tyrell Williams is the main target. There are going to be some weeks where [WR] Keenan Allen is the main target. If you get a [guy like] Hunter Henry back, he may have a week. There's only one football. You can't get them all the ball all the time, but Mike is doing a good job."

On the impact of RB Austin Ekeler returning:

"It's going to be good. Austin looked good running around this week. He has fresh legs now. He's missed a couple of games. I'm looking forward to seeing him go home and play well."

On if Ekeler has looked improved throughout the week:

"Austin has looked really good this week."

On his confidence that the team can position itself going into the postseason on a positive note:

"I would like to think that we're going bounce back from last week and get back to, offensively, of being a more balanced team — and efficient in running the football and passing the football. There's no reason why we shouldn't. We're as healthy as any team in the league right now. I feel good about that."

On playing at Denver:

"It's tough to play in Denver. I used to play there. It's loud. They have a great fan base. They don't make it easy — and they have a good defense. It will be a challenge."
