Pat Shurmur earlier today on the offense’s improvement-
“You’ve heard me say it numerous times, it’s about scoring points and we’ve scored more points this year. So in my mind, we’re making improvements. Now why is that happening? Well, I think we’ve put some players on the field this year that have the ability to get in the end zone and they’ve shown it. You want those explosive plays, you want to score points and as coaches what do we grind on? The efficiency of things so that you make that process easier. We’re 1-5. We have to be better in all areas, but it’s a little easier to talk about progress once you’ve won a game now. We have to continue to improve. This is a game you have to practice to get good at it and that’s what we’re working on today.”
Trent Richardson, Travis Benjamin, Mohamed Massaquoi, Ahtyba Rubin and Jason Pinkston all returned to at least limited duty at practice today. Richardson said he will play Sunday. He may wear a protective jacket under his shoulder pads to help pad his sore ribs.
