Head Coach Jay gruden held his first presser of the week leading up to a Monday night game against the Chiefs. He talked about their offense, and what the Redskins need to do to stop them. He also gave some injury updates, including a surgery for backup tackle Ty Nsekhe that will cause him to miss time.
Defensive Coordinator Greg Manusky also spoke for the first time since the Redskins defense shut down the Raiders offense last week.
Kirk Cousins was scheduled to speak today, but he received a text from his pregnant wife that it was time. Good luck to the Cousins family today!
Ty Nsekhe surgery:
#Redskins OT Ty Nsekhe had surgery on his core muscle injury and is out 3-to-6 weeks. TJ Clemmings will now be primary backup at OT.— Brian McNally (@bmcnally14) September 28, 2017
TE Jordan Reed, RB Rob Kelley, LB Mason Foster and DL Matt Ioannidis limited in practice today, Gruden says. https://t.co/KInBfYdVfz— Washington Redskins (@Redskins) September 28, 2017
Matt Ioannidis is off to a good start. Limited because of sprained rotator cuff. Anthony Lanier would be next man up there. #Redskins— Brian McNally (@bmcnally14) September 28, 2017

No Kirk Cousins presser today. His wife, Julie, is in labor. "It's go time!" he said. Leaving facility now. Best of luck to them.— Brian McNally (@bmcnally14) September 28, 2017
