Jay Gruden Presser: Injury updates from Redskins training camp

Jay Gruden gave updates from Fan Appreciation day on Saturday

NFL: Washington Redskins-Training Camp Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

One roster cutdown:

"That’s what the preseason games are for and lengthy practices sometimes are for. Sometimes I’ll go threes vs. threes to see who shows up big. But as far as the cuts are concerned, I think it’s a great idea. Last year for instance, we had to have that cut down to 75 before our fourth preseason game, and we don’t play our starters in that game. We had a bunch of guys who were still hurt, so we barely had enough guys to play.”

CB Fabian Moreau/S Montae Nicholson:

“I think they’re making progress. You know, I think they’re getting closer. That’s the trainer, the doctor – it’s all on them when they clear them as far as full contact but they’re doing everything. They’re running and being involved in individual and walkthroughs and all that stuff, so they’re getting the mental reps, which is good. Now, we just have to work them into the lineup somehow when they get cleared.”

Jordan Reed:

“I don’t know, we’ll see. I think from every indication that I’ve gotten and received from the doctors and trainers and from Jordan, I feel like he’ll be ready for the season. But, you never know, so we’ll still have to wait and see. Things are odd from time to time, but I have total faith that he’ll be ready.”

Preston Smith:

Jamison Crowder:

“He’s getting close. I saw him running yesterday out here on their day off, rehabbing, and he’s getting closer.”

Junior Galette:

"As far as his natural rush ability, when a guy oversets him, he can slip them inside, he short sets them, he can go outside. I mean, he has got natural rush instincts that not a lot of people have, so that’s good to see.”

Samaje Perine:

"I think his hands, I think his ability to learn, I think has been great. Just his work ethic, just him as a person, everything has impressed me about Samaje so far. I think he's a total pro. You know, he comes in, he’s no nonsense, works hard, prepares well and is a very bright kid. Really doesn't have any weaknesses in his game. We’ve got to shore up his protection a little bit, but, like all rookies, that takes time – where your eyes are, how to pick up certain people and all that stuff. But I've been impressed with Samaje, very much so.”

Kirk Cousins' leadership helping WRs:

"Yeah, I think so. I think he's earned that right and that respect. And that takes time for a young quarterback that's competing to be a starter and find his way in the NFL. You just don't do that overnight. I think now that he's established himself as a starting quarterback in the league and for this football team, I think he feels more comfortable, especially now that he feels good with the system. So he's going to probably do more and more of that. Hopefully he doesn't have to walk through them [routes] like that, but he will voice his opinion and his displeasure if things aren't the way he wants it.”
