Trey Quinn going to IR. Had ankle surgery today.— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) September 12, 2018
Cam Sims to IR also. Ankle surgery— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) September 12, 2018
"They both were high ankle. Yeah, there’s some new procedure they’re doing. I don’t exactly know what it is called, but they went in there and did something.”
Mo Harris was limited. Has been cleared to do some work but not completely cleared yet. #Redskins— George Wallace (@GWallaceWTOP) September 12, 2018
"He’s been allowed to do individual drills and progress from there. As far as still being in it, he’s technically not out of it until he’s officially cleared but they have progressed him into normal work duty.”

WR Jehu Chesson called up from practice squad. Gruden says he’s an outside and special teams guy. If Harris is out and Crowder goes down, Jordan Reed becomes the slot receiver. “He can do everything.”— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) September 12, 2018
Ryan Anderson at FB:
"I’d like to think there was coaching involved in this league. I don’t know. But yeah, we coach him up. We try to coach him up. You know, we tried to get him a couple reps on Friday-Saturday just to get him looking at the defense. We don’t give him a huge package of plays, just three or four plays in there. It’s really hard to simulate that, you know, without pads on a Friday or Saturday, but Ryan has volunteered himself to do that. Daron Payne has done it before in the past at Alabama, so we have a couple options there in-house without having to activate a true fullback. Ryan’s got the body for it; he’s got the toughness for it and the power, so he’s a good fit for it.”
Jay Gruden asked about how conversation went to bring back Brian Quick, who they cut at end of camp.— Brian McNally (@bmcnally14) September 12, 2018
Gruden: “So...do you want to come back?
Lol. Quick will almost certainly be active Sunday.
Gruden says Jordan Reed would likely be the next slot receiver behind Jamison Crowder as they’ll keep Quick outside. #redskins— Kareem Copeland (@kareemcopeland) September 12, 2018
"Well, he was able to make plays, both in man coverage and in zone coverage. I think it was one of his better games and he tackled pretty well. I think it was one of his better games as a pro here and I think he’s got to continue to make strides to get better and keep studying the game and the people he is covering but he obviously had a big game Sunday.”
”Well, he’s a good athlete. Being an ex-receiver has helped out a little bit too because he can see routes and break on things, but really it’s his length and his size. He’s got great speed and recovery speed if he does get beat at the line.”
Jay Gruden says the Colts aren’t a trap game for the Redskins. He says they need to focus on being more consistent before that can be considered.— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) September 12, 2018
