Week 10 vs. Cincinnati: Friday Transcript

Posted Nov 8, 2013

Head Coach John Harbaugh

Opening statement: “It’s good to see everybody. Thanks for coming. Obviously, we’ve got some very special guests [children from the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra’s OrchKids program] here, and we’re going to talk about that in a minute. [Watching them perform] was really a lot of fun. We had a really good practice. I think we got a little taste of the weather for the rest of the year. I didn’t see too many of you guys out there for very long. (laughter) It’s not unexpected that you guys would’ve disappeared when the wind started blowing.” (laughter)

How encouraging is Daryl Smith and Jimmy Smith coming back to practice after a few days off? (Aaron Wilson) “During the season, these are the things that happen during the season, and you’re always dealing with something. They were back today practicing.”

With Jimmy Smith and Corey Graham both on the injury report this week, how did Asa Jackson look after such a long layoff? (Luke Jones) “It’s two separate things. It’s not really tied together. Asa [Jackson] looked good. It looked like he was in shape. Like always, [he was] working the little nuances of the game and stuff like that. After a few weeks off, those are things [you evaluate] in terms of knocking the rust off. But I thought he was surprisingly sharp, and he looked good.”

Is there a possibility that Asa Jackson could be activated this week? (Jamison Hensley) “We have a roster spot. As far as the 46-man [roster] or the 53-man [roster]?” (Reporter: “Either one.”) “There’s a possibility for either one of those. We’ll just have to see how it goes. And obviously, we wouldn’t tip our hand anyway. But we have a roster spot, obviously, available. That would be the logical move.”

Has Kelechi Osemele gone on the IR yet? (Aaron Wilson) “We already have the roster spot, yes.”

After a couple losses, [you’re] getting back in front of the home crowd, and I know you like the fans behind you during the game. Getting back in front of them has to feel pretty good. (Bill West) “It’s great to play at home. You get to play eight of them there, and we have a few of those left. This will be our opportunity to play Cincinnati at home. We’ll go there later in the year. This will be our opportunity to perhaps go a long way toward making the second one meaningful, and that’s what we need to do.”
