Case Keenum spoke to the media before practice today, and interim Head Coach Bill Callahan stepped up to the podium after the Redskins practice ended. Keenum talked about facing his former team, and said his shoulder is fine heading into the game. Callahan gave some injury updates and talked about how great Vikings RB Dalvin Cook is.

Callahan time. Tells reporters Thompson, Peterson, Norman are day-to-day with injuries. Vernon Davis "limited."— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) October 22, 2019
I'll go out on a limb and say no Thompson, Davis for TNF.
Preparing for the Vikings:
Vernon Davis continues in individual. I think that means he can’t play Thursday because they’re out of team practices, which (to my knowledge) he would need to participate in before playing.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) October 22, 2019
Will double check on that.
Callahan describes Bryce Love’s surgery as a clean up procedure. Just cleaning up the scar tissue. Nothing major.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) October 22, 2019
Callahan on Vikings RB, and NFL leading rusher Dalvin Cook:— Ryan Fowler (@FowlerRyan1) October 22, 2019
"He has it all. He's fun to watch on tape, but not fun to defend."
Says pursuit of the defense will be of utmost importance with Cook's ability to both rush inside, then bounce plays to the outside with his speed.

Asked about returning to face Vikings, the team he led to NFC title game 2 years ago, Case Keenum says he’s been a lot of places and “Minnesota was another stop.” pic.twitter.com/q8R1l4TUue— Stephen Whyno (@SWhyno) October 22, 2019
After about the 12th Minnesota question, Keenum says “If I keep going like I’m going then I’m going to be playing against my old team every week!”— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) October 22, 2019
Thursday Night Football:
Case Keenum to the podium. Says the shortened week doesn't change much. "Trust your eyes, trust your feet, let's go play."— Ryan Fowler (@FowlerRyan1) October 22, 2019
Case Keenum to the podium in Ashburn. He says he actually likes the short week. “You don’t overthink it. You just go out and play.”— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) October 22, 2019
He says a lot of the cut ups you might watch two or three times, you just watch once. Keeps it really simple.
Keenum said the #Vikings defense is pretty much comprised of the same players that were there when he was there. Talked about their talent and ability to switch up schemes.— Kyle Stackpole (@kylefstackpole) October 22, 2019
