McCarthy spoke to the media after Friday's practice. Here are some highlights:
On Tramon Williamsí groin injury:
Just a little aggravated. Just following procedure. I feel with the 48 hours of treatment and just being cautious.
On Eddie Lacyís status:
Frankly, I thought that there was a really good chance for him to practice today based on his diagnosis after the game. Once again, our doctors are going through the procedures and trusting the information. We still have time and the doctors are in charge of evaluating, going through the protocol. I know that Eddie Lacy wants to play, so weíll see what happens.
On the possibility of Lacy playing without any practice:
Well, itís not ideal. Itís not ideal for a rookie to go through the week without any preparation and then play in the game, no question about it. Iím not excited about it. We want 46 players that we feel give us the best chance to beat the Cincinnati Bengals. When the plan was put together on Monday and Tuesday, Eddie Lacy was part of that plan based on the information given by the medical staff. If thatís not the case ó itís always a medical decision, first. You have secondary plans, and weíve done that, but the primary plan, Eddie was part of the thinking.
Able to call up running back Michael Hill from the practice squad on Saturday?
Decision to be made on Lacy tomorrow?
The rotation at safety:
It will be similar. Once again, Cincinnatiís offense has a lot to say about how you distribute your defensive personnel.
