Being from England, do you know (St. Augustine Prep graduate and London native) Jack Crawford?
“Yes, I do. We’ve met a few times. He’s a good dude. It’s a shame he got hurt this year.” (Crawford suffered a torn biceps in early October while playing for the Atlanta Falcons).
There was some talk that you were upset about your lack of playing time last week. Is that true?
“No. I put a lot of pressure on myself and I’m hard on myself. I was frustrated because I wasn’t able to finish (a 71-yard run) and put the ball in the end zone.” (He fumbled at the 3-yard line, and wide receiver Nelson Agholor recovered it in the end zone for a touchdown).
What did coach Doug Pederson say to you during your conversation with him the next day?
“It wasn’t a big conversation. I understand the reality is that I’m not always going to get a lot of opportunities. It’s about taking advantage of the opportunities when my number is called.”
