HEAD COACH DOUG MARRONE, Buffalo Bills Head Coach
Q: Now that you have all of your complement of receivers healthy, do you feel like you need to get Marquise Goodwin on the field more than you already had?
A: It was exciting for all three of those players last week. Marquise and obviously T.J. (Graham) and Chris Hogan. I think those guys showed a lot. I talked to Ike (Hilliard) today and said, ‘We can roll those guys in now, just keep rolling them in.’ Any one of those guys can make a play and they’ve proven they can make a play. We have to look at what we want to do and I still think there is some growing going on between everyone. Coaches, players of what they do well and how they go. I think he’s someone that can run behind a defense; I think people can play off him. I think we’ll be challenged this week. When you look at Atlanta, (Desmond) Trufant is back there, he’s been playing extremely well for them as a rookie. We’ll have some challenges in trying to get our guys open.
