*Huff said he will play since he hasn't missed a game in his career.

*For those who are in the Derek Hagan should play more camp, here's Jackson on that:

Q: What went into Hagan being inactive again?
A: OK, let me, because this has come up several times, about Hagan. I just said Hagan's done a great job and obviously he was our leading receiver in the preseason, right? But I never once said he's the best receiver on our team. I never once said that. What he did in the preseason gave him an opportunity to be on this football team. It dod not make him the starting receiver on this football team. So let's make sure we understand where I was with Hagan. Now, if he gets an opportunity this weekend, he gets an opportunity but I get to make that decision. Nobody else. Me. So everybody else who thinks I was supposed to put him out there because he was our leading receiver in the preseason, forget that we had other guys that have been very good receivers on this team. So I get to make that decision. That's the decision I made last week and on we go. Now, if he plays this week, he plays. And he'll...

Q: We arrived at our conclusions based on the cues we took from you, saying you would play players who performed best?
A: Yeah, but here's the deal. You said that 'performed the best.' No doubt, but we had some other guys that hadn't practiced that I've seen perform in games and make big plays. i.e. Jacoby Ford. So, you guys were like, I'm supposed to sit him down, sit Jacoby Ford down, and let this kid play. No, that's not where I was. So, let's make it clear about what that was. That was for him to get on the team. Performance is what matters, and that's what got him on the team. That's where it starts first. Then, he has to continue to perform and beat some of these guys out and then he'll play. That's the way it works. OK, anything else.
