Redskins interim Head Coach Bill Callahan and Defensive Coordinator Greg Manusky spoke to the media after today's practice. They gave several injury updates, including Daron Payne's ankle injury. Manusky can't explain why Josh Norman has been getting abused this year. He said the benching of several starting DBs was a one-time thing against the Jets last week.
