Quinton Ganther: "It was good to see. [Jaylon's] a young man who came in and has worked hard since he's been here. I'm happy to see him carry the torch and lead us in the time we needed it..."I don't know how much is left, but I'm going to milk him for everything that is in him."

Quinton Ganther: "The kid is already naturally gifted. He just has to learn the nuances of the position. He'd only had two days of practice. I congratulate him for taking it seriously with two days of work. That's hard to do; get thrown in the fire and have two days of work. I appreciate him for the work he's put in."

Quinton Ganther: "What I see from him is accountability. If you can count on a guy, you can put him in any situation. He's a smart kid. He can get us out of jams when we need him. He's Steady Eddie. I love that kid."

Question: What are the challenges Jackson will face as he transitions back to running back?

Quinton Ganther: "The challenge is getting out of that quarterback mindset and getting into a running back mindset. Even with him playing [running back] in high school and earlier in his career, he did look at it from the lens that I try to get these guys to see it from. He's starting to get it and starting to understand it. One of the biggest things about the position is the protection. He understood the protection from the offensive line point of view and the quarterback point of view, but he didn't understand where the running backs go. That is going to be the biggest challenge, getting the footwork and everything down pat. He's used to giving [handoffs], not taking them. We have to get all that together as well."

Question: Is there an advantage to having that knowledge as a quarterback?

Quinton Ganther: "It's always an advantage if you can see the game through a different lens and bring it to the group. That's always a big thing."
