Jay Gruden answered questions after today's practice. He gave injury updates, including Matt Ioannidis seein a specialist for his shin injury. He said Alex Smith will talk when he's ready, but Smith and his family asked that the details of his recovery weren't shared. There could be a few faces on the offensive line after losing two guards last week, and center Chase Roullier is dealing with a knee injury.

Jay Gruden said Alex Smith’s wife and family asked him not to go into detail on his situation. Gruden will respect their wishes and says “when time is right” Smith will address media— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) December 6, 2018
Gruden said he was asked by Alex Smith as well as Smith’s wife, father and mother to keep his recovery private. “When the time is right Alex will address the media.”— Les Carpenter (@Lescarpenter) December 6, 2018
Gruden again says “wishful thinking” Colt McCoy could be back in 3 weeks but realistically it will probably be longer— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) December 6, 2018
Gruden says offensive line is very much up in the air. Nsekhe at guard is possible.— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) December 6, 2018
Gruden says they’ve mixed and matched a lot at guard this week. They don’t know what they’re going to do yet. Nsekhe is in the mix. Sounds like Roullier is too, with Rhaney potentially playing center.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) December 6, 2018
Gruden on Sanchez: “It’s hard to get a great evaluation, I just met him 10 days ago.” #Redskins— George Wallace (@GWallaceWTOP) December 6, 2018
Gruden said cadence is a huge issue with Mark Sanchez right now. False starts are driving him crazy.— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) December 6, 2018
