How was practice this week?

"I thought we had good attention to detail. I thought the energy was good."

Each week has been something different to work on, such as tackling in week one, situational stuff, forcing turnovers?

"Those specifics you are mentioning never go away. They are points of emphasis. The situational plays still are something we cover each week as a priority. I think there are a handful of things that we look at when we play an opponent specifically and we try to target keys on offense, keys on defense, and the same way in the kicking game versus Dallas."

How do you go about practicing the forced turnovers?

"You have (practice) periods where it's the emphasis of the period, in individual, you name it and you can think of 10 or 11 different ways to secure the football and make sure it's secured offensively and then defensively you set up tip drills, balls on the ground, strip drills and then reinforce it throughout every snap in practice."

Has Jonathan Goodwin exceeded expectations at all as far as how quickly he has been able to bounce back?

"Like I would say normally in regards to an injured player, he is doing well."

Is it harder with an offensive lineman in the nature of their position, do you have to see a 100 percent return?

"Each player is different."
