Run game coordinator Kirby Wilson on Isaiah Crowell's statement that he thinks about his contract during and after games: “He spoke from his heart ... That was not shocking.

Hue Jackson had this to say on Isaiah Crowell believing he can help the team with more carries: "I don't have a problem with anybody walking in the office and saying, ‘Coach, give me the ball.'
