Jay Gruden returned to the podium to give some injury updates. Left guard Shawn Lauvao could miss some time with a calf injury, but Gruden doesn't think it's an IR situation. Tony Bergstrom would take over at center and Chase Roullier would slide over to LG if Lauvao is out. The Redskins reportedly brought in several offensive linemen for tryouts this week.
Dr. Gruden also reported that WR Paul Richardson Jr. hurt his knee on Sunday and got an MRI on it which came back clear. Patient Paul Richardson corrected Gruden and said the MRI was for his injured shoulder.

Shawn Lauvao could miss games with a calf injury, per Gruden.

Sounds like Shawn Lauvao could miss some time. Gruden said he’s day to day but not IR bound
LG Shawn Lauvao has a calf injury and could miss some time. Not an IR situation, coach Jay Gruden says. WR Maurice Harris (concussion) has been cleared to practice and did. RG Brandon Scherff (right knee) was limited today at practice.— Brian McNally (@bmcnally14) September 19, 2018
Michael Floyd/Breshad Perriman:
Asked what Floyd and Perriman can add to #Redskins offense, Gruden replied “I don’t know I just met them yesterday.”— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) September 19, 2018
Gruden said with the bye week coming, that gives them time to look at Perriman and Floyd. Preferred their experience over promoting some of the wideouts on the practice squad— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) September 19, 2018
Gruden is similar to Alex in saying a lot of the struggles Sunday came from limited opportunities. The playcalls get a lot easier when you’re not staring at 3rd and 20 and you get some more chances after the conversion.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) September 19, 2018
OL if Shawn Lauvao misses time:
If Lauvao does miss time, Gruden said Roullier would likely shift to guard, like he did for Scherff. Tony Bergstrom would play center. Gruden feels Bergstrom is better suited for center than guard.— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) September 19, 2018
Gruden had said Richardson had an MRI on his knee and it was fine. That’s not right. Paul says there’s nothing with his knee. Shoulder is the only thing. It’s just sore.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) September 19, 2018
Paul Richardson underwent an MRI on his shoulder. What did it reveal? “That I have a sore shoulder.”— John Keim (@john_keim) September 19, 2018
