Coach Jay Gruden: "Be ready for anything with Mr. [Aaron] Rodgers."

Head coach Jay Gruden speaks to the media following practice Friday.

On the injury report:

"Injury report, [Troy] Apke, hamstring, is out. [Shawn] Lauvao, calf, is out. Zach Brown, oblique, is questionable. Paul Richardson, shoulder, is questionable and Mo [Maurice] Harris, concussion, is questionable."

On if WR Maurice Harris is still in concussion protocol:

"I'm just doing what I'm told there with the trainers and we are going to find out tomorrow whether he can go or not. But, he's been cleared to practice. He's had a good week of practice and we'll find out the final word tomorrow; whatever the trainers and doctors tell me."

On if Harris practiced all three days:

"Yup."

On if WR Michael Floyd and WR Breshad Perriman have shown enough in practice to be active on Sunday:

"No, not really, we have had a good week of practice, got a good look at them, but I think we've got another day with them tomorrow morning. We will see where they are at and make our final decision on the fifth guy."

On the status of S Troy Apke hamstring:

"He's out. I think it's good to keep him out and he'll have the bye week to recover. He's close [in recovery]. He'll start running next week."

On C Tony Bergstrom:

"I like that he's a veteran guy, has played the position, and is very smart. He can make all the calls. Obviously, he's a good center. He's played some ball. He helped us out last year and I think the quarterbacks are comfortable with him."

On the level of concern with LB Zach Brown's oblique injury:

"Yeah, I think that's it. I think it's a pain tolerance with him and he practiced today; did a good job. We will see how it goes. We intend on him playing but if something changes tomorrow we'll make that adjustment with our other guys."

On his familiarity with the Green Bay Packers:

"I think you can only expect so much. You've just got to be sound fundamentally secure in what you're doing and be ready for anything with Mr. [Aaron] Rodgers. He makes a lot of things ordinary look extraordinary and they do have some wrinkles, especially special teams, defense, and obviously they will have something for us I'm sure. You've just got to play the game, execute, and try to get after them."

On the status G Brandon Scherff:

"Yeah, he practiced today. He did a good job today. He's got the brace on and I think he's going to be good to go."
