HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on the day's first practice) Training Camp

"We got started today a little bit of preparation for Washington and trying to get our guys just a little bit of feeling for what they might do and get ready for the game. It's been a good week of preparation. We will have one more practice this evening (Friday) and then kind of a dress rehearsal (Saturday) morning and then take off. I think our guys are excited about it. I'm looking forward to visiting the Hall of Fame and see if we can win a game also."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on if the players sense the significance of being a part of the Hall of Fame induction weekend) Training Camp

"I don't know if they sense it yet, but I think when we get there (Saturday), since we are going to the Hall right around the time of the induction ceremonies, I think, especially our young guys, when they see some of the exhibits and see some of the guys that are in there, it will be a little bit special. I know the couple of times that I have been there as a coach, when you go out and play the game and you are being introduced and they actually bring the inductees in between the two teams. It will be a special moment, and hopefully the guys will have a feel of the history they are a part of."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on how they are preparing for Washington) Training Camp

"We've looked at a little bit of their defense last year, and we've looked at Seattle's offense in trying to piece together what we think they might do. For the most part, it's going to be just going out there and preparing to play and letting our system handle things."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on the rotation for Sunday's game) Training Camp

"We are going to start with our first groups. I think our first offense may play a little bit more than our first defense. Then midway through the first quarter we're going to start to get a look at some of our younger guys and guys we want to see. I would say it's probably likely that the offense will play a little bit more than the defense."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on how the staff will determine how long the first-team offense stays in the game) Training Camp

"It probably will be plays. I haven't really decided (how many) yet, but it will definitely be by plays and we will discuss that tonight."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on if QB Jim Sorgi will just play with the first team) Training Camp

"Not necessarily. Jim will play a little bit more than (QB) Peyton (Manning) normally would have played. We won't necessarily have all the first group in with him all of the time. He will get his share of work."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on which QB will play after Jim Sorgi) Training Camp

"I don't really know that yet. I'm going to talk with Jim Caldwell and see what his feelings are, and I'll probably be able to let you know that (Saturday)."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on who will not play in Sunday's game) Training Camp

"At this point, our PUP guys, Gary Brackett and Clint Session might be the only ones ruled totally out at this point. (WR) Marvin (Harrison) I don't think is going to play, but we will make that determination."* *
