Kelly was asked about Daniels’ condition. He said that he “would consider him day-to-day.” When asked about the play where Daniels was hurt, Kelly said, “Certainly there was a penalty on the play. You know, targeting is looked at by the replay officials.” He confirmed that the play was sent to the league office by LSU.
