Jay Gruden gave some injury updates at today's presser before Fan Appreciation Day at Redskins training camp. He also denied a report that Josh Doctson had his heel drained.

DaRon Payne:

"It’s been about a week. We said about two to three weeks.”

Josh Doctson:

“I don’t think I’ve ever heard of a heel being drained. So, I don’t know where that came from. That is not true, but he’s going to do a little something out here today. We’ll see. I’d be surprised if he went full-go, but he did not have his heel drained. He just got it stepped on. No, he’s fine.”

Chris Thompson:

Kenny Ladler:

"I’m a firm believer that playing football is better than not playing football. So, it’s the only opportunity that presented itself for him. He took advantage of it, got himself some football on tape, our guys saw him, and brought him in for a workout, and he had a good workout. So, I think any experience is great experience really. I mean, the coverages are different. They have 12 guys on a field, lot more to it, but, you know, quite frankly I think he’s done a good job.”

Intensity of training camp:

"Yeah that’s about right. You know I try to script for our first four days of training camp. That was done before we got here, before the summer break. Then on our day off I try to script the next three, and then - but a lot of it is dependent on who we have. You know sometimes I have to taper off certain personnel groups because we have injuries. There was one day we had three outside backers that couldn’t practice. We had to do all sub stuff for offense. So unfortunately, you can’t predict injuries and who is going to be out, so you have to adjust your schedule accordingly. You know, it’s not always as easy as, okay let’s do this period, this period, this period, this period. Sometimes you have to adjust and we’ve had to do that because of our offensive lineman issues, our receiver issues, our outside backer issues. Zach Brown was hurt one day and as was Mason [Foster] was dinged up so we had to, you know, taper off just a little bit.”
