Coach Quotes

Matt Peet confirmed to the press that new addition Dupree is set to make his debut this weekend: “Tyler has hit the ground running in practice and will feature – whether he’ll start or not I’m not sure.”

Peet also provided an injury update on Willie Isa: “Willie has torn his pectoral muscle which is going to need surgery. We can’t define a timeline yet until he’s had his follow up appointment, but it will be months rather than weeks.”
