Reid: Tuesday Game Won't Change Much

Andy Reid addressed the postponement of Sunday night's game against the Minnesota Vikings to Tuesday night and said that he expects his team to perform regardless of the circumstances.

What challenges does the postponement present for you, your staff and your team?

Reid: Listen, really nothing. We're OK with it. We're organized and prepared for this, and we completely support what the league did from a safety standpoint for everybody. We got the guys out of the hotel and home, and they'll come back for a walkthrough tomorrow and then to the hotel, and it will be just like a Saturday night before a Sunday game, just a normal Saturday night - Sunday schedule.

How tough will it be facing Dallas next week on a short week with so much potentially at stake?

Reid: I don't think it's a problem. I think we'll be all right. We've had Monday games, Sunday night games, we had a Thursday game, so we've been through a lot of this already, and that will help us. We'll be fine.

* What will the schedule be next week?*

Reid: We'll be off Wednesday, then we'll come back Thursday and do a little more (than a normal Thursday), then we'll have a normal Friday, bring them to the hotel Saturday, and go Sunday.
