What We Learned From Friday's Media Availability

Head Coach Andy Reid spoke with the media on Friday


OPENING STATEMENT: "There's really no injuries. Tamba [Hali] didn't practice today, but that's just what we've been doing. He'll be good to go and play. We look forward to the challenge of playing Oakland and going out there. It's a great atmosphere for football, and the guys had a good week of practice. We're excited to get out there and play."

Q: Phillip Gaines is good to go?

REID: "Yeah, everybody's good to roll."

Q: What did you see from Sio Moore in the two days of practice he had?

REID: "He was getting acclimated. It looks like he can run a little bit. We know that from when he was at Oakland, but again, he's just learning right now."

Q: No plans to have him [suited] up Sunday?

REID: "Well, there's a chance. We have to sort that all out."

Q: Since Marcus Peters is going back to Oakland and gets very excited to go back to his hometown, are you going to talk to him before the game?

REID: "No, he'll be alright. He loves to play the game, and that's what I like about him. He knows. He gets it. It's his second year now."

Q: How have you actively built your relationship with Marcus Peters?

REID: "I appreciate him as a player, and he's a good kid. He's done everything that we've asked him to do. He comes to work every day and tries his heart out. I'm okay with that."

Q: It's obviously a huge rival week, does that change the atmosphere for you guys as you prepare and go into Oakland?

REID: "Not really. We understand that it's an exciting atmosphere – 'The Black Hole' and all of those things. That's the great part about this game. We're fired up to get out there."
