Sarkisian: Young receivers’ battle to replace Kasen Williams ‘going great’

Highlights from Steve Sarkisian‘s availability after Wednesday’s practice:

(on wide receiver competition between Damore’ea Stringfellow and Marvin Hall to replace Kasen Williams) It’s going great. Guys are performing well. We’re going to need them all. With the number of plays we’re running, the pace we’re operating at, we feel really good about our six guys that they can go in and play. Opposite of Kevin (Smith), we’ve really got two guys — really, three guys; DiAndre (Campbell) can fill in there some, too — that can all play in there. And we’re confident that they’ll do a good job.

(on Stringfellow) You see his stature — he’s obviously a very big guy. What he provides is, he’s got a tremendous strength in catching the football. His hand-eye coordination, his ability to catch the football even when people are on him I think is a unique quality that he possesses. It happened today in our third-down competition with the defense. I think he had three catches against the first-team defense. Was really contested. He was really covered, but he’s so big and strong and has such strong hands to catch the ball; I think that’s the unique thing he provides.

(on Stringfellow replacing Williams) I think it’s natural fit for ‘String’ to do a lot of the similar things Kasen did. It plays to String’s strengths right now.

(on special teams) Marvin Hall will be returning punts and String will be back returning kickoffs with John Ross. Just trying to get our best guys in position and obviously understanding Kevin’s role and how important he is to us offensively and trying to minimize what he’s doing on special teams right now because he’s so vital to us.

(on Darrell Daniels playing as a tight end) We’re getting closer to it. Hopefully we can get him in there for a few plays here and there. He’s doing a good job on special teams. He’s got a great attitude about it, and I think his future’s very bright at the position.
