Jay Gruden spoke to reporters before today's practice. He talked about when Jordan Reed and Chris Thompson will be ready for full practice, the weather in Richmond, and some under the radar players.
Gruden said Ryan Anderson (back spasms) should be good to go today #Redskins— Kimberley A. Martin (@ByKimberleyA) July 31, 2018
With the weather forecast for the week, the #Redskins will be practicing in the rain, unless there is lightning.— Chad Ryan (@ChadwikoRCC) July 31, 2018
Afternoon walkthroughs might move indoors to the hotel or another facility though.#Redskins
Jay Gruden: "Alex is throwing it well and so is Kirk, I mean Colt. Jesus."— Stephen Whyno (@SWhyno) July 31, 2018
Pernell McPhee expected to sit out Tuesday practice but Gruden likes him. “He’s been a good surprise for us” calls him a “nuisance rusher”— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) July 31, 2018
Gruden on Trey Quinn: He’s fun to watch— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) July 31, 2018
Jay Gruden says Kyshoen Jarrett will continue to be an intern-coach for the defensive backs and special teams unit, a way for him to stay in the organization and get his feet wet into the coaching realm.— Jake Kring-Schreifels (@jakeks19) July 31, 2018
Kyshoen Jarrett is in camp working with the DBs and special teams. Gruden said it's akin to an internship. "We want to make sure it's something he wants to do," Gruden said. "If he's committed he’ll be an unbelievable football coach."— John Keim (@john_keim) July 31, 2018
Robertson's speed is a huge asset, because it helps a ton on special teams. He's so fast they used him as the scout team running back last year.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) July 31, 2018
"He can really rush the passer" which obviously is the most important thing at that position.
Look for Jordan Reed to get some 11 on 11 work on Saturday (fan appreciation day) per Gruden. #Redskins— Rich Tandler (@TandlerNBCS) July 31, 2018
Jay Gruden, DB:
I asked him directly, and got the answer;— Chad Ryan (@ChadwikoRCC) July 31, 2018
"Jay Gruden is questionable today with a shoulder, knee, ankle..." https://t.co/hqUhRRKUHf
Grduen on Thompson: Sometimes you treat them like a china doll.— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) July 31, 2018
Thompson will get team reps today and should be "full go" sooner than later.
Chris Thompson should get some more team reps today. Gruden expects him to be full go sooner than later. #Redskins— Kareem Copeland (@kareemcopeland) July 31, 2018
New England game:
"Quite honestly we don't do a whole lot of prep for New England [preseason week 1].— Chad Ryan (@ChadwikoRCC) July 31, 2018
We just try to get our base formations and fundamentals down"
