NFL: Washington Redskins at New England Patriots Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

Jay Gruden answered questions after today's practice as the team prepares for the final preseason game against the Ravens on Thursday night in Baltimore. Samaje Perine should return to the field as the RB competition heats up with last week's debut of Adrian Peterson in Burgundy and Gold. Gruden also gave some injury updates, and talked about competition on the roster for the last spots on the team.

Samaje Perine:

Maurice Harris:

Jonathan Allen/Daron Payne:

"Well, they’re both strong humans and they’re hard to move and they’re tenacious in their efforts, which is really critical for a defensive lineman. When you have talent and you have strength and you’re also tenacious, it’s a heck of a combination and one we feel really great about with those two guys and really when you throw Matt [Ioannidis] in there, he’s the same way. [It’s] the same with Ziggy Hood and the rest of the guys have also kind of picked up that mentality in Coach [Jim] Tomsula’s room. We feel really good about where they’re at.”
