Transcript - Practice (Sept. 28, 2018)

Friday, September 28, 2018 | Hoag Performance Center | Costa Mesa, Calif.


On the status of WR Keenan Allen:

"He moved around well today, so he's going to be fine."

On Allen's injury:

"The knee was sore after the game [against the Los Angeles Rams]. We gave him some time off and he had a toothache, so we let him get his tooth fixed. He's fine."

On whether Allen had a tooth removed:

"Well, he had a toothache and got that fixed."

On whether Allen will be available to play on Sunday:

"I feel comfortable that Keenan will be available."

On whether WR/PR Travis Benjamin will be available on Sunday:

"Travis is a game-time [decision]. We'll go up to the game with him again and see how he feels during pre-game. We'll go from there."

On whether the injury to Benjamin will be long-term:

"You just hope that it keeps improving and keeps getting better, so we can get him back out there. We really miss his speed, but when he's healthy we'll get him back out there."

On whether Benjamin's full health revolves his speed:

"He's like a Lamborghini. If something's a little off, then they don't run quite as well. That's Travis right now."

On LB Kyzir White's injury:

"He's had some soreness in the knee and after the game, it stayed sore. So, he wasn't able to go this week."

On any potential cause to the sore knees of Allen and White:

"Both of them are sore. I think you get to a point in this league where you can only make so many cuts and changes in direction [until] things don't feel quite as good. Kyzir is sore and we're still having it looked at, so hopefully he can get back out there soon."
