Wade Phillips talks about young players

7/29/2010

SAN ANTONIO -- Wade Phillips was in a good mood after his Thursday afternoon news conference. Before riding in a golf cart with his wife, Laurie, Phillips joked to reporters that he had to take his girl friend home and watch film.

*Phillips said Teddy Williams, the newly signed cornerback who didn't play college football, seems aggressive, has quick feet, good hip turn and won't play wide receiver. He's mainly a corner.

*Wide receiver Kevin Ogletree is getting better. He's trying to get more playing time over Patrick Crayton and Sam Hurd. Phillips said he's doing better on special teams compared to last year and is running routes better. Phillips compared him to former Cowboy Terry Glenn and how good of a route runner he was. "He's doing fine," Phillips said of Ogletree.

*Phillips admitted right tackle Marc Colombo should have finished the regular season on the bench instead of coming back from leg injuries. Phillips praised Colombo's leadership in meeting rooms and on the field. "He was always the leader in the classroom," Phillips said. "A little bit on the field a vocal leader too. Not a big change there."

*There's a chance three injured players might return on Monday. The likely choices are Jason Hatcher (elbow), Josh Brent (hand) and Sean Lee (quad). Patrick Watkins (knee) might need a little more time. Martellus Bennett, who hasn't practiced this summer because of a sprained ankle, should return Friday. Bennett will be limited.
