Can you talk about why you picked up DeShawn Wynn?
"He's versatile and well-versed in an offense like ours up in Green Bay. With P.J.'s (Hill) injury we felt it was necessary to bring him in here. P.J. has a torn tricep, not fully torn, but nevertheless serious and he'll have surgery tomorrow. With Wynn it was his first kind of exposure to this"

How difficult is it to add two backs and have to evaluate them so quickly in camp?
"I think like anything else you have to be ready. Fortunately we have a ways before we start the regular season. Those guys can get quickly into the playbook and get acclimated. The good news is we have three weeks this Thursday before we play, so there's time to get these guys trained, see how they do and what they're made out of."

Can you give your thoughts on Chris Ivory's performance Saturday?
"He did some good things. There are some things he has to work on in regard to landmarks. I thought he ran hard and had good effort. He has good balance and finishes his runs well, which has been pretty exciting to see and yet there are a ton of things he's working on like any rookie would be but specifically a running back. He's making progress and it was good to get him work with the ones the other night."
