RB Dontrell Hilliard:

On what went through his mind after RB Duke Johnson Jr. was traded:

“I am happy for him. It is a good opportunity for him. It is a good opportunity for us. At the same time, I am just going to do what I can to play my role on the field for the team.”


On how comfortable he feels filling the role as a No. 2 back and third-down back role:
“I feel really comfortable. That is how I look at it coming in. Anytime my number is called, I am going to be the one they have so I have no doubt in my mind that I could fill more of an important role.”


On his relationship with Johnson and how that impacts the situation:
“That was my brother on and off the field. It does not play a factor. It is a business. That is how we have to look at it, but at the same time, he taught me few things and I took those things into consideration and use it as I go on.”


On the fumble on Thursday night:

“It was him making a play and me trying to get the ball down packed. Just learning from the mistake, putting it past and trying to move on from it for now.”


On if he feels comfortable returning punts:

“Yes. Like I said once before, any role they give me, I am going to try to do my best at it and that is how I go about looking at it.”
