In his press conference on Monday, head coach Brian Flores stated that WR Will Fuller is going to miss this week's game vs. Tampa. Flores said, "Fuller is going to be out at least this week. Again, still running some tests to see how quickly he can get back or get some more opinions on how quickly he can get back. But he's definitely out this week."

CB Byron Jones left the game early vs. the Colts last week, and Coach Flores said on Monday, " Byron is more of a day-to-day (thing). We'll see how that goes and see if he's able to practice on Wednesday."

Coach Flores provided an updated on Raekwon Davis, who went down with an injury early in Week 1 vs. the Patriots. When asked about his status, Coach Flores said, "he's making a lot of progress, and we're hopeful to see him this week."

Quote of the Day

Rookie LB Jaelan Phillips on facing legendary quarterback Tom Brady in six days

"It's pretty crazy obviously to have the opportunity to play against somebody I've been growing up my whole life watching….coming into the game, I'm not about to be starstruck. You can't really focus on 'Oh my gosh, this is Tom Brady.' Or 'this is Leonard Fournette.' Everybody is nameless and faceless, so you've got to prepare for everybody just like they're anybody else."
