Following’s Thursday’s practice, a trio of offensive starters for the Buffalo Bills took to the podium to meet with reporters. Rookie tight end Dalton Kincaid, wide receiver Stefon Diggs, and running back James Cook all fielded questions about the team’s season to this point, what’s at stake moving forward, and even some light-hearted questions ahead of this weekend’s game with the Dallas Cowboys.
Catch up on the latest from Kincaid, Diggs, and Cook below!
Tight end Dalton Kincaid
Kincaid was asked about tight end Dawson Knox returning and getting back to work on the field with him, his thoughts on the unique things Stefon Diggs brings to the team on game day, stating “he’s in love with the game.”
Kincaid also reassured those who asked about his lingering shoulder injury and the newly reported thumb injury that he’s good to go. Kincaid also discussed the confidence he and the offense has in any situation, especially in late-game moments. For more from Kincaid, check out the embedded video:
Wide receiver Stefon Diggs
Diggs responded to the adversity the team is faced with now, and has dealt with throughout the season. Diggs mentioned how much he and his brother had anticipated going up against each other — and hopes there’ll be an opportunity in the future. Diggs acknowledged the challenges he’s facing from opponents at this point, and how “it’s damn sure frustrating” with him being unable to make plays he was earlier in the season. Contrary to those who interpret that to mean he’s unhappy in his role, the offense, or with the team — it’s all about his inability to contribute due to the defense taking him away. Diggs points out that when he’s in these moments, he helps out in other ways, such as motivating his teammates and doing what’s needed to ensure the team’s on the same page and ready for the next snap.
Ever the optimist, Stefon Diggs noted: “I like being the underdog more than anything.”
Running back James Cook
Reporters tried to peel back a few layers of the stoic nature James Cook carries with him by default,
Since Brady took over: “Just the energy that he brings, ‘cause he’s kinda young so kind of bonding with us more and kind of being around us and giving us that confidence that we can go out there — and he trusts us to make plays.”
