Opening Statement/Injury Report: “At practice today, we had Turk McBride, (who) did not practice. David Hawthorne did not practice. Lance Mooredid not practice. Travaris Cadet did not practice. Brodrick Bunkley was ill, did not practice. Jonathan Casillas was limited and Roman Harperwas limited. That was it for practice.”

Earlier in the year, you said the most improved aspect of the team was the pass rush. Why hasn’t that translated to the field?

“A lot of times with pass rush, it comes (to) when you’re up in a game and the offense is trying to catch up. That’s when the guys can pin their ears back and really get a great rush. Obviously, with third down, we have to do a better job of rushing. That’s when you see a lot of the numbers. We’re improving and we have to keep working on it.”

Are you seeing a quality pass rush from the guys in practice?

“Yes.”

How difficult to replace Lance Moore if he can’t play?

“It’s a case where guys have to step up and we have to adjust (to) what we’re doing and fill guys in where we can. It’s hard to replace Lance Moore.”

Along the defensive line, is their first role to make it upfield or to read the offensive line?

“You’re talking different down and distances, different quarterbacks and different styles of quarterback. Does he run? Does he not run? Do we need to keep him in the pocket so he doesn’t break out of here and take off running or do we feel like we can get to him and he’s not a threat to run? There’s a lot different factors when it comes to pass rush. We’re working on our four-man rush and changing that up. Sometimes we want to really hold him in the pocket and sometimes we want to get to him. We have not been getting to him enough and we’re working on it.”

Is the pass rush the biggest problem with the defense right now?

“It’s one of the problems. We need to stop the run better and pass rush.”

Has the effort been there the way you wanted?

“Definitely. These guys are working. They’re working on it hard. They’re getting the system, they’re learning the system. Obviously, you can see the improvement as it goes. It didn’t show up in sacks or pressure last week but it will.”
