Redskins interim Head Coach Bill Callahan and Offensive Coordinator Kevin O'Connell spoke to the media after the final Redskins practice of the year. This could also be the final week both of them are employed by the Redskins. Several players have been ruled out for Sunday's game. Two more members of the secondary are going to IR, and more new faces will likely be on the field in Dallas.

The Redskins are signing Jester Weah to the active roster, Callahan said.— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) December 27, 2019
Bill Callahan just said that the team brought a player up from the practice squad “to the varsity.” That was awesome.— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) December 27, 2019
Callahan just called @Tress_Way one of the best punters in the league, which is well deserved. He was selected to the Pro Bowl for the first time in his career and has made steady improvements every season he's been with the team. #Redskins #HTTR— Zach Selby (@DarDarBinx61) December 27, 2019
When the season's over:
Redskins have a team meeting scheduled for Monday morning. Players also have exit physicals. Press conference scheduled for 3pm.— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) December 27, 2019
We just don’t know who will be talking.
Callahan said it will be business as usual for the @Redskins after coming back from Dallas. Most of the players have early flights back home on Monday, so there will be exit physicals and a team meeting. #Redskins #HTTR— Zach Selby (@DarDarBinx61) December 27, 2019

OC Kevin O'Connell at the podium.— Zach Selby (@DarDarBinx61) December 27, 2019
O'Connell said he was proud of the way @dh_simba7 played prior to him being injured. Said he made improvements throughout the year, and that was apparent in each game. #Redskins #HTTR
Last podium session of the year with O’Connell:— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) December 27, 2019
He says Haskins growth was ongoing right up until the last snap of his season. He did a great job of “eliminating bad football” and KOC says ultimately he’s really proud of Dwayne.
OC Kevin O’Connell says Dwayne Haskins was always confident on game day. Said eventually his preparation matched his confidence. Said when got better feel for feet/eyes in unison that resulted in better numbers.— John Keim (@john_keim) December 27, 2019
KOC says that no matter what, he’ll have a discussion with Dwayne. He cares about him and they’ve spent a ton of time together.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) December 27, 2019
Kevin says that he’ll drive home how important the process is and how he can take it to Sunday’s and be successful.
Kevin O’Connell says he’s “so wrapped up” in trying to beat the Cowboys that he’s not looking ahead to next week and any coaching changes— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) December 27, 2019
When asked about the possibility of being the head coach in Washington, O’Connell says he’s focused on the game Sunday. He says he’s used to change as a player and a coach. Whatever comes Monday, he’ll deal with then.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) December 27, 2019
