Childress update

Defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier said coach Brad Childress missed today's practice because of a family matter but that it won't affect his availability for Saturday night's exhibition game at Seattle.

"He had a family situation he had to deal with and he's on his way back, actually," Frazier said. "He'll be here pretty soon."

Frazier didn't elaborate, but asked if Childress definitely would coach the team in Seattle, he said, "No question."

In Childress' absence, Frazier ran the practice and said it was a good one.

"He asked me just to kind of oversee things, make sure things were going fine," Frazier said. "The players responded well. As I mentioned, they were enthusiastic in practice. They were really focused and concentrated and we reminded them of exactly what coach's expectations are. ... We've got enough leadership on this football team where guys stood up and just made sure there was no drop-off."
