Jay Gruden gave some updates after today's practice as the team tries to wipe the stink off of the Saints loss and move on to the Panthers. Two of the Redskins top WRs missed practice today, while Josh Doctson reurned with what looked like a duct tape heel protector on. Gruden spoke about the communications issues that continue to cause busted plays, and also talked about Josh Norman's brief benching Monday. Defensive Coordinator Greg Manusky also answered a few questions about what went wrong in the last game.

Limited: everyone from yesterday.
Gruden says Crowder’s ankle is sore but he’s not out yet for Sunday. Monitoring and we’ll see tomorrow.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) October 11, 2018
Simplifying the scheme:
Gruden had mentioned the possibility of simplifying the scheme if they had to, but says today they haven’t. More about communication issues.— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) October 11, 2018

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said improving communication on D was again a focal point. Says a lot goes back to film work and also showing many looks in practice. Says of Saints O “nothing that should have been confusing.”— John Keim (@john_keim) October 11, 2018
Tried asking Gruden who is ultimately responsible for communication on the field. He cut me off “me.”— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) October 11, 2018
Gruden said Josh Norman would have re-entered the game even if Greg Stroman had not been beat in his one series.— John Keim (@john_keim) October 11, 2018
