Jay Gruden answered questions after tonight's loss to the Bengals. He gave updates on a few players who left the game, and a few who were held out including Cole Holcomb and Terry McLaurin. He was not happy with some of the penalties called, including two offensive pass interference calls on rookie WR Kelvin Harmon.
Gruden at the podiums “I thought the tempo was okay. ... Still the penalties, man. It’s something we’ve got to get it cleaned up.”— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) August 16, 2019
Gruden: I applaud Kelvin Harmon for his effort and want to see that every night— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) August 16, 2019
Jay Gruden: "I want Kelvin Harmon to do what he did every time the ball is in the air. That's why we drafted him." Added "if he cant do that I dont know what he can do." He's right. #Redskins— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) August 16, 2019
Gruden says McLaurin has a hurt tailbone and that’s why he was held out. Holcomb has an AC joint injury (shoulder)— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) August 16, 2019
Gruden mentions Cole Holcomb was held out due to a sore AC joint. Says he should be ready to go for Atlanta next Thursday.— Ryan Fowler (@FowlerRyan1) August 16, 2019
Gruden said it’s hard to talk about Colt McCoy challenging for the starting job until he’s fully healthy. Right now, he isn’t.— John Keim (@john_keim) August 16, 2019
Gruden won't bite on question about Colt McCoy in QB derby. Get him healthy first, then see. That Keenum hasn't run away with the gig despite no Colt in preseason keeps the experienced option in play -- if he gets on the field.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) August 16, 2019
