Clay Helton said today the bruise on JT Daniels’ right hand, “hurts like heck” but he will play against Texas.
And what about his performance vs. Stanford?
“He’s going to go through some growing pains and we’re going to live with it and we’re going to move on as an offense,” Helton said.
Here is Daniels: “There were things we missed. Things we’ve got to see a little quicker, I’d say is the biggest thing, just basic experience things that I’ll learn as I go.”
From QB coach Bryan Ellis: “I was really proud of him for showing toughness he did for coming back in the game. You gotta stand in there; At some point, you’re going to get hit and you’re gonna get hit in the mouth. You gotta stand in there and throw it. You’re gonna get hit anyways, you might as well complete it.”
Ellis on the failure to find wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown.
“We missed a couple. He was open. For whatever reason, the ball didn’t find him in the first half. In the second half, he had six or eight targets.”
